Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Project module.

The Project Module facilitates project-based learning--students creating publishable files or other on-line projects. It includes flexible sequencing of six modules:

  • brainstorm
  • signup
  • submit
  • schedule
  • assessment
  • publish (not yet implemented)

Student projects that can be best managed with this module include artwork, websites, powerpoint presentations, essays, and research articles, especially those requiring multiple drafts and multiple assessments. It is not intended as a project management module with versioning control and resource management (see the Task/Bug Tracker module).
