Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Dataform module.
The Dataform is a major enhancement of the Database activity module. Like the Database module, the Dataform allows for constructing an entry form from various field types in a flexible layout. Users can then add information records to a collection, which can be viewed in various ways and searched for particular items.
The Dataform may be used in a variety of applications from resource repositories to assessed activities.
With the dataform module installed in your moodle server (see Installation) you can add a dataform instance and set it up to the desired resource or activity application.
