I've always liked the Social Format for Moodle, I think it makes the idea of a social forum come to life when it's the main focus of the course. I then wondered if perhaps other activities could benefit from this experience, such as Glossary, Wiki or Database.
I'd like to make a course which was activity-driven, and hence rather than digging into the activities the user simply has a tabbed course where the activities are 'planted' as tabs at the top.
I appreciate you can 'make' there and put icons (or similar) in Topic 0 - but I wondered if a course format would offer more integration of the activity being directly on the page, rather than having to create all the activities.
Is this feasiable? I've some some digging into a few formats to try and hack this together but I don't know enough (yet) to be able to complete the task.
If there was any general support for this I'd happily continue with my hacking around, I just wondered what other people thought?
