Moodle: Activities & Resources: Board

Board is an activity that enables instructors to create post-it boards where students can collaborate. Contributions are anonymous. The instructor creates a post-it table with columns where students can add new posts containing text, links, images, and embedded YouTube videos. Settings for students include a closing date for submissions, post order, and move/delete. Instructors can move any posts, download submissions, and rate posts.
