One of our favorite course formats – Socialwall – has recently been updated for Moodle 3.0.
Maintained by Chris Kenniburg, Bryan Smith and Andreas Wagner, this course format offers a beautiful and easy way for instructors to add resources as a course progresses. The format is also great for students because it presents information to students in a very familiar Facebook-newsfeed-like format, where they also have the ability to interact with commenting/messaging.
Chris Kenniburg has posted a video walkthrough of the format:
Funding for Socialwall was provided by the Regional Educational Media Center (REMC) Association of Michigan.
