The Database enables staff to set up form fields that students can then complete to contribute entries to the database. The fields may consist of images, files, URLs, numbers, plain text and rich text (e.g. like HTML you see on web pages).
The Moodle Database activity can be used by students to contribute information on a topic that can then be searched, filtered and even graded (if you choose to do this).
Here are some ideas for using the database with your students:
Tutors and Course Administrators can set up the database fields and configure how the data is displayed, both as a list and as individual entries.
Students can contribute content to the database by completing the database fields.
Determine what form fields you would like the students to complete and what information you would like displayed in both the list view and individual entry view.
If you find any inaccurate or missing information you can even update this yourself (it's a communal wiki).
If you have a specific question about the tool please contact the Digital Education team.
