Moodle Wiki

Build knowledge with your learners using wiki in Moodle

As you may already know, wikis are collaboratively created and edited. You can use a wiki in Moodle to help your learners build their knowledge together when they are working on a group project, contributing to research or writing a group essay.

Educators can also use a wiki in Moodle to plan a scheme of work, meeting or agenda.

Wikis in Moodle do not have to be used solely for group work.
Individual wikis can act as a personal journal for examination notes.

So how do you add a wiki to your Moodle site?

Moodle and Interactive Content

Making your Learning Content Interactive Using H5P

Create, share and reuse interactive HTML5 content in your Moodle course.

H5P empowers everyone to create rich and interactive web experiences more efficiently.

There are numerous features available through H5P: quizzes, presentations, drag and drop, flashcard … etc…and also the ability to embed a video from Youtube into your course page and then add in questions and overlay information on top of the video. This allows a lecturer to insert “engagement points” on the videos to check a student’s understanding or to supplement the content in the videos.

H5P content is responsive and mobile friendly, which means that users will experience the same rich, interactive content on computers, smartphones and tablets alike.

Moodle – what our students think

Moodle“It’s really useful! “

“ I like Moodle. The website is easy to navigate and I can find out more about my courses in a click of a finger. .…Moodle keeps me up to date with events and news at different centres and advertises work experience and seasonal jobs. Being able to have my own student email is essential, this gives me the opportunity to speak with my tutors in a professional manner. Overall, I think Moodle is perfect for students.”

“Moodle is really useful for the students because it gives all the information student required about the course “

“So much better!”

“Moodle is brilliant, I have been able to access information needed for my course and have been able to print out worksheets when needed. Fantastic “

“I find Moodle really helpful and useful, …my maths teacher set us some work to do through Moodle.”

“I really like it, I think it is very helpful for my studies and there is plenty of information on it. I use it on a daily basis for maths checking work and studying subjects within maths. I also log on most days to check my emails.”

Moodle Gradebook

The Gradebook allows teachers to manage grades for Moodle activities, such as assignments and quizzes in a course.

The Gradebook collects items that have been graded from various assessed activities in Moodle and allows you to view and change them.

When you add an assessed activity to a Moodle course, the Gradebook automatically creates space for the grades it will produce and then adds the grades as they are generated, either by the system (e.g. quizzes) or by you (e.g. assignments).

Moodle is the student portal and the course management system we use at Derby College to support learning, teaching, assessment and feedback. Moodle provides a safe place for students to access important information, course materials, upload work, gain feedback, view grades, participate in a wide variety of online learning activities and communicate with their tutors.
