Moodle Tutorial 3: The modules
|Tutorial 3: Exploring the Moodle interface||Objectives | The modules | The frontpage | The breadcrumb trail | Summary|
The Moodle platform provides three types of logic elements for building a learning support system: the communication, resources and activities.
Communication modules: to enable students to talk with the teacher (ask questions, raise requests, etc.) and, more importantly, to communicate among themselves and build their own learning community.
Resource modules: these elements represent the contents of the course materials. They are all kinds of texts, books, notes, slide shows, links to external Web pages and so on, designed for the students to read and study about them.
Activity Modules are the active and collaborative part where the student do much more than merely reading text; proposed problem-solving, essay writing, imaging, webquests, workshops, may be examples of activities in Moodle.
