Thank you, Floyd! I was thinking of Wiki as you and Paula suggested but can't seem to figure out how to get a table in there. I paste it but then it disappears. Any tips? Thank you!!!
Moodle 2.4 What activity would be good for a daily student log
I recommend using the OUWiki, which has to be added as a plugin, instead of the standard Moodle Wiki.
In the standard Moodle Wiki, you have to manually add the template/table to each student's wiki. I've done that by creating the template/table in the teacher's wiki, then doing a copy/paste into the other individual wikis. If you have trouble, copy/paste the source code instead of the editor text.
If you use the OUWiki, you create the template/table in another wiki, then download that as a template file (go to Wiki Index). Then create the wiki you want students to use and upload the template file for that wiki (there is an upload section in the wiki setup page).
Let me know if you need more assistance.
