Learner-Defined Glossary

When students participate in a course by researching ideas and defining them in a common glossary, their audience expands from one person (the teacher) to a larger community (their peers).

This is one of the modules that best illustrates the way that Moodle can fundamentally improve upon the experience of a traditional classroom. When students contribute to a course in a public place like the glossary, their ideas are given weight and attention and often result in a greater pride or ownership of the assignment.
