“Comment is free, but facts are sacred”
Inspired by an interesting discussion on the ALT mailing list recently, I thought I’d create a short post about using the Comment block in Moodle…
A Comment block can be added to any page in Moodle, enabling users to easily add comments to specific activities. A similar interface enables comments to be added to activities such as Assignment, Quiz, Glossary, or Database etc.
With editing turned on, simply navigate to your chosen activity, click ‘add a block‘, and select Comments:
Using this approach means that simple discussion can take place in and around specific activities, rather than be confined to a Forum, so as not to detract too much from the focus of the activity itself.
