Chapter 9

Adding Collaborative Modules

In This Chapter

  • Using wikis to foster learners' involvement
  • Crafting glossaries into learning modules
  • Providing lessons that engage and challenge
  • Making effective use of Moodle's collaborative offerings

Adding collaborative modules to your Moodle course supports the educational philosophy of learning by doing activities with other learners. That philosophy simply says that people learn from each other by sharing information and constructing projects for all to use.

In this chapter, you find out how to create specific Moodle modules for the learners in your course to use with you and/or other learners. For example, this chapter shows you how to create and manage a wiki that the course participants can use to learn about a chosen topic. You also discover some interesting uses for glossaries and use the Glossary module for collaborative project work. You set up lessons that lead your learners to follow a guided or branched path through information supporting their learning strategies. When you incorporate these modules, you can turn passive learners into active participants in your course.
