This page shows you how you might choose to implement the expectations from the Moodle Baseline in your own blended learning course, for students who are being taught face to face and their learning is being supplemented with e-learning resources and activities.
For distance learning courses you can take a look at what could a distance learning course look like?

See the screenshot of a Moodle course homepage below, for examples of a communication statement (also see the pop-out containing the text students see when they click the link and view the page). There is a news forum (for one way announcements to students), with a forum outline provided in the news forum description, with the setting to show this on the course homepage selected, so students can understand how this discussion forum is to be used.

See the screenshot of a Moodle course homepage below, for examples of anonymous feedback points. The suggestion box uses the Advanced forum with anonymous posting enabled, so other students can see the suggestions that are posted. The Course Feedback Questionnaire uses a Questionnaire, so students can confidentially provide anonymous feedback and save and resume their answers. A third option, the feedback activity, would allow students full anonymity, as (unlike the Questionnaire) nothing is recorded in the Moodle logs when they respond (however it doesn't support save and resume).
