Moodle Main Features Moodle Main Features Attendance List
Attendance List Activities and Resources Use of Activities in Moodle Asynchronous online discussions (Forums)
Reflection and analysis via carefully constructed questions Need guidelines and facilitation to keep the activity focused on the goals/objectives of the lesson (instructor to model at the beginning of the course, and then students can have opportunity
to create discussion questions and facilitate) Feedback in the form of a grade, or as a summary of the discussion topic Use of Activities in Moodle Case study (Forum, Assignment, Turnitin)
Analysis, synthesis, and application of course content through responses and interaction Students could post their answers, and then it becomes the basis for an online discussion Use of Activities in Moodle
Group assignment (Wiki, Forum, Assignment, Turnitin) Small groups construct a solution to a given problem, and demonstrate their understanding through some sort of digital presentation (can be to whole class)
Debates (Wiki, Forum, Voice Activity, video upload through Assignment or Forum) Teams discuss a controversial topic/article in a structured forum, each taking a position Promotes analysis and synthesis
Use of Activities in Moodle Self-check activities A Quiz that is marked by Moodle A Q & A forum where the students can only see the Instructors post/correct answer (and all other students answers) after they post their thoughts first
An Assignment where the students can get participation marks for completing it, and then the Instructor can post the answers as a file/document so they can check their own work Creating Groups
Creating Groups Groups and Groupings Use Groups in Moodle, to assign a particular activity (or all course activities) to groups of students.
Groups can be especially useful for activities where students interact with one another. With forums, wikis, and databases, students in the same group can post and reply only to each other. Each group member always works in their own group, but you can control whether or not they can see
contributions of members of other groups. Groupings are a collection of groups, and you can assign activities to specific groupings as needed. Assignments

Creating a quiz in Moodle is a 2-step procedure: 1.Setup the quiz features 2.Add questions Quizzes
Getting Feedback: Feedback The feedback activity module enables a teacher to create a custom survey for collecting feedback from participants using a variety of question types including multiple choice, yes/no or text input.
Feedback responses may be anonymous if desired, and results may be shown to all participants or restricted to teachers only. Getting Feedback: Feedback
Getting Feedback: Choice The choice activity module enables a teacher to ask a single question and offer a selection of possible responses. Choice results may be published after students have answered, after a certain date, or not at all. Results may be published with student names or anonymously.
A choice activity may be used: As a quick poll to stimulate thinking about a topic To quickly test students' understanding To facilitate student decision-making, for example allowing students to vote on a direction for the course
Getting Feedback: Choice Getting Feedback: Questionnaire The questionnaire module allows you to construct surveys using a variety of question types, for the
purpose of gathering data from users. Getting Feedback: Survey The survey activity module provides a number of verified survey instruments that have been found useful in assessing
and stimulating learning in online environments. A teacher can use these to gather data from their students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching. Note that these survey tools are pre-populated with questions. Teachers who wish to create their own survey
should use the feedback activity module. Getting Feedback: Survey Turnitin Module
