Here’s a quick slideshow that gives highlights on one of my favorite course formats for Moodle, the Socialwall. The learning stream focused format for Moodle creates courses in a way that teachers can create course resources as the course progresses and includes some usability improvements such as the “Retrieve title and teaser image from Webpage via URL” filter which creates handy, Facebook-like previews of resources. The student experience is great as well, students see the most relevant information in a Facebook or Edmodo like stream which they can interact with through comments and replies.
You can download the plugin set for your site at https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=set&id=74. The format was developed with support by the REMC Michigan by Synergy Learning.
