Our Moodle 3.2 becoming user (social) oriented, not teacher oriented
 

Hi

We would like to use Moodle as a social learning platform (the topic is learning digital skils). We would provide content (tutorials), but would like users to access the platform for free, register, log in, use the contnet (video tutorial and interactive video tests).

And most importantly, we would like users to like, rate the content, upvote or downvote, use forum and discuss, provide feedback to us (content creators) and help each other through forums.

At the moment we can't even set up star-ratings for each individual video tutorial.

Could Moodle be the right platform at all?

Thanks for the answers and thoughts.

Mitja

You can certainly do all this in Moodle. They can register for free, view the videos and participate in forums. There are various ways you could get them to rate videos -you could for example put the videos in a Choice activity. They watch the video and then make a selection of their rating (according to a rating scale previously set up by you.)

Thanks Mary,

but our videos are in fact scorm packages (interactive content-tutorials). So I would probably need a separate activity on "star-rating" or upvoting.

Indeed. In that case, then I suggest having a Choice activity which is triggered by completion of the SCORM activity. See Restrict access.
