Módulos de actividades
Moodle contem vários módulos de actividades que podem ser usados para criar diversos tipos de cursos.
The Chat module allows participants to have a real-time synchronous discussion via the web. This is a useful way to get a different understanding of each other and the topic being discussed - the mode of using a chat room is quite different from the asynchronous forums. The Chat module contains a number of features for managing and reviewing chat discussions.
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.
Esta actividade pode ser a mais importante - É nela que se realiza a maior parte da troca dos pontos de vista. Os Fóruns podem ser estruturados em diversas formas e podem incluir uma média das anotações entre colegas. As anotações podem ser visualizadas em vários formatos e podem incluir anexos. Ao subscrever num forum, os participantes receberão cópias de todas as anotações no seu email. Um professor pode impor uma subscrição em qualquer um, se eles quizerem.
This activity allows participants to create and maintain a list of definitions, like a dictionary.
The entries can be searched or browsed in many different formats.
The glossary also allows teachers to export entries from one glossary to another (the main one) within the same course.
Finally, it is possible to automatically create links to these entries from throughout the course.
The Survey module provides a number of verified survey instruments that have been found useful in assessing and stimulating learning in online environments. Teachers can use these to gather data from their students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching.
A lesson delivers content in an interesting and flexible way. It consists of a number of pages. Each page normally ends with a question and a number of possible answers. Depending on the student's choice of answer they either progress to the next page or are taken back to a previous page. Navigation through the lesson can be straight forward or complex, depending largely on the structure of the material being presented.
This module allows the teacher to design and set quiz tests, consisting of multiple choice, true-false, and short answer questions. These questions are kept in a categorised database, and can be re-used within courses and even between courses. Quizzes can allow multiple attempts. Each attempt is automatically marked, and the teacher can choose whether to give feedback or to show correct answers. This module includes grading facilities.
Recursos são conteúdos informativos que o professor pretende introduzir na disciplina. Podem ser ficheiros previamente preparados e enviados para o servidor da disciplina; páginas editadas directamente no Moodle; ou páginas web externas para aparecerem como parte da disciplina .
A choice activity is very simple - the teacher asks a question and specifies a choice of multiple responses. It can be useful as a quick poll to stimulate thinking about a topic; to allow the class to vote on a direction for the course; or to gather research consent.
Os Trabalhos permitem que o professor especifique a tarefa que exige que os alunos preparem um conteudo digital (em qualquer formato) e o submeta enviando-o ao servidor. Os trabalhos mais vulgares incluem composições, projectos,relatórios etc.Este módulo inclui a possibilidade de avaliação.
A Wiki enables documents to be authored collectively in a simple markup language using a web browser.
"Wiki wiki" means "super fast" in the Hawaiian language, and it is the speed of creating and updating pages that is one of the defining aspects of wiki technology. Generally, there is no prior review before modifications are accepted, and most wikis are open to the general public or at least to all persons who also have access to the wiki server.
The Moodle Wiki module enables participants to work together on web pages to add, expand and change the content. Old versions are never deleted and can be restored.
This module is based on Erfurt Wiki.
A Workshop is a peer assessment activity with a huge array of options. It allows participants to assess each other's projects, as well as exemplar projects, in a number of ways. It also coordinates the collection and distribution of these assessments in a variety of ways. The Workshop module is contributed by Ray Kingdon.
