Webquests

These have become a popular way of guiding students to find out information on the Web. They follow the spirit of Moodle in that they encourage individual thinking and a constructivist approach to learning (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Philosophy). They could be simple knowledge hunts in which students gather some information and report back. Or they could be more engaging webquests in which students raise their critical awareness by evaluating different sorts of information they find. Here's an example of each:

Knowledge hunt about London

Students are asked to find out some basic information about London: population, ethnic makeup, and interesting facts about the transport system. They are given some useful websites to visit, like http://www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/londonfacts/keyfacts/default.htm ...
