Skills Repository Activities

N.B. In the Skills Repository module, activity has a peculiar meaning, not to confuse with Moodle Activities like Forum, Assigment or Quizz. We shall see that Moodle activities may lead to Repository Activities by the way of Outcomes.

Rather than declare skills item by item the student may check its expertise by reporting activities.

An Activity:

  • is a declarative part written by the student;
  • concerns an instance of a skills repository (it contains a skills list of this repository);
  • is linked to a course;

An unlimited number of documents can be linked to an activity.
