In our hack Chantelle and I explored the following Moodle Tools:
Illustrative Glossaries, Moodle Groups and Moodle Offline Quiz Editor .
We began with Glossaries and found that it is time consuming and not aesthetically pleasing. Chantelle created a short glossary in Year 9/ Biology/Unit 6.
We feel the Glossary function doesn’t stimulate active learning and there are other applications/resources that would be more engaging for students. When viewing a definition it takes 2 clicks and a download to get to a photo.
Perhaps younger students, or ESL/foreign language students, would appreciate and make good use of this tool.
As for the Moodle Offline Quiz Editor, we would rather use Socrative to quiz/assess student knowledge. It is more user-friendly, easy to use and runs on tablets, smartphones, and laptops.
