Description

World of Water is a 'child' of a very successful Water! course, a pilot run in early 2010 using Moodle 1.9

It's a brief course of awareness of the issue of clean water, starting from personal environment at home to global issues, roughly pitched at early high school audience. Deliberately, the course showcases a variety of standard Moodle tools. All activities have a contextual explanation in orange italics.

The course is partially completed by several students, mostly by Barbara Gardner (featured 'student' account on Mt Orange School Demo).

Highlights

  • Water Glossary - students create their own
  • Waterbase - students search for and add their own useful resources on the topic of water, can comment
  • Water Supply or Demand - Choice activity after which students are split into groups
  • Create a Junior School Water campaign - full Workshop activity with samples and peer grades

  • Use of HTML block - Rollyo search engine and Visuwords
  • Inserted IMS package 'Water & human health'
  • DANGER! - Q and A type forum with 'provocative' question. Students had to answer first before seeing replies.
