5 Creative Ways To Use The Database Activity

Content Type: Online Teaching and Course Creation

Language: English

Description of Presentation

The versatility of the Database Activity allows Moodlers to explore every creative set up you can think of, if you are willing to take up the challenge!

This presentation will demonstrate 5 creative academic as well as non-academic uses of the Database activity by the teachers, students, and staff at Rutgers Biomedical & Health Sciences, and how to set them up:

  1. Private Submission Dropbox: Physician Assistants completing their Clinical Rotations are using the Database as a submission drop box for their Rotation Journals, which are reviewed and approved by their assigned Advisors. Advisors can then return graded journals to each student along with comments on the entry. This set up was preferred over 10+ assignment drop box links for each rotation.
  2. Course Resource Repository: A Medical Class with multiple guest speakers who teach various aspects of the course is using the Database tool as a Course Resource Repository. The guest speakers submit their course documents via the database, the course manager reviews and approves them, and the approved resources become available to the students.
  3. Post-First Discussion Board: The Q & A Forum type in Moodle works on thread-by-thread basis, but a call for a forum-based post-first solution led to the Database activity being set up to require students to submit an entry before being allowed to view any existing entries in the entire Database.
  4. Community Service Log: Particular types of community service expose students to different contact experiences, and for a particular discipline certain categories of service build critical skills. Students use the Database activity to capture their community service experiences and log how many hours of the coveted skill they have under their belts. This has calculated fields using javascript. 
  5. Support Call Log: The Database has been used to create a Support Log for entering a record of support phone calls, tracking the status of each support ticket, duration of calls, assigned staff, problem areas and resolutions.

There are so many more uses for the Database activity beyond this presentation. Hopefully you will be inspired and challenged to come up with more innovations yourself!
