Keynote: Bag it and Tag it - Julian Ridden ‘The Moodle-man’, moodle.org
Julian's presented lots of practical examples to make more dynamic, powerful, searchable/queryable, constructivist Moodle sites.
- Database tool e.g.,
- Study notes database: For students to contribute study notes (in order to access the next part of the course) - can then use search tool esp. advanced search
- Book review database
- Lost property database
- GIS database - location and links through to Google Maps
- Weblinks database
- Usually text-based, but can also include audio (e.g., pronunciation) or video (students can upload)
- Can be used for autolinks
- Can get RSS feed from glossary
- "UC uses glossary & random glossary block for announcements and system messages"
- The (older) glossary module is actually just a special case of the database module and totally redundant.
- Can be used for assignment submission (so that other students can see it)
- Can use forums (they are podcast enabled)
- POD = personal on demand
- Create forum - just RSS feed with audio
- Bloom taxonomy Web 2.0 version diagram (organisation of tools)
- Photos (Flickr, iStockPhoto), iTunes, YouTube, Delicious, Twitter, Prezi, Slideshare etc.
- RSS feed import e.g. Delicious, Twitter
