edna Groups is a free service for communication
and collaboration between members of the
Australian education and training community.
The Groups environment is based on Moodle.


Choice Module
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Choice
Pedagogically, the choice activity can be used to
provide an opportunity to share starting points
through which learners are encouraged to think
about and articulate existing knowledge and
understandings of a topic.
Forum Module
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Forum_module
Forums activities can contribute significantly to
successful communication and community building
in an online environment.

Glossary Module
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Glossary
The Glossary activity allows participants to create
and maintain a list of definitions, like a dictionary.

Linking to a file or website
http://docs.moodle.org/en/
Although it's easy to generate content directly in
Moodle, you can also upload any type of electronic
file you like. You can also browse for a website,
copy the url and make it available as a resource in
Moodle.
