Another way to Moodle – Setting your moodle up as a blog.

October 2, 2010 at 6:01 pm Leave a comment

Often, engaging in online discussion is the sole purpose of setting
up a Moodle. In these situations building a typical Moodle classroom
with multiple topics doesn’t make sense. Instead it would be useful if
the first thing students saw upon visiting the moodle were the
discussion posts. By default Moodle uses a “Topics format”. Although
very versitile and familiar, there are other ways to set up the main
page of your Moodle classroom. Setting this up is relatively simple:

Once you have created your Moodle classroom and had it approved,
visit the site and click on “Settings” on the administration toolbar.

Next, directly below the course description is a selector called
“Format”. By default this will be set to “Topics format”. Select this
and choose “Social format”.

When you now visit your Moodle page you will notice that the topics
are gone and instead there is a big “Add a new discussion topic” button
at the top of the screen. Click this button to post, and you’ll notice a
big difference from the typical Moodle forum. Posts are displayed as a
blog! Visitors can click “Discuss this topic” to enter the forum.

Cheers,

Doug
