Activity Modules

Moodle contains a wide range of activity modules that can be used to build up any type of course.

 Database Activity

The Database module allows the teacher and/or students to build, display and search a bank of record entries about any conceivable topic. The format and structure of these entries can be almost unlimited, including images, files, URLs, numbers and text amongst other things. You may be familiar with similar technology from building Microsoft Access or Filemaker databases.


    With this module you can survey your students with a custom survey.


This activity can be the most important - it is here that most discussion takes place. Forums can be structured in different ways, and can include peer rating of each posting. The postings can be viewed in a variety for formats, and can include attachments. By subscribing to a forum, participants will receive copies of each new posting in their email. A teacher can impose subscription on everyone if they want to.


This is a not a true activity - it is a "dummy" activity that allows you to insert text and graphics among the other activities on the course page.
