Activity Modules

Moodle contains a wide range of activity modules that can be used to build up any type of course.

The postings can be viewed in a variety for formats, and can include attachments. By subscribing to a forum, participants will receive copies of each new posting in their email. A teacher can impose subscription on everyone if they want to.
