This is what I am trying to do, and I am not sure if I should a glossary, Wiki, or if Moodle is not even the right choice.
I have a group of students who are going to be part of the same group for a number of years, 6th - 12th grade. During those years, I want the group to add words to either a wiki or a glossary. I want it to be something that the students contribute to from all of their courses (separate Moodle courses), and from year to year.
Essentially, I am following the philosophy of ED Hirsch where he created a list of words that he believed that a literate adult knows. I want to expand on this idea by having the students essentially build their own personal encyclopedia / wiki / glossary. In the end it will be a multi-year, multi-class group activity. In the end, I would want them to also be able to export the glossary / wiki and then be able to import into something like Mediawiki, joomla, or some other content management system of their choice.
It would nice if I could just create a class called "Graduating Class of 2020", and add all of the students to that class. Then create the glossary / wiki in that class, but then all of their other classes / teachers (math, science, history, etc.) would need to be able to access that "Graduating Class of 2020" course and be able to assign activities to that class from their own classes, for example, the math class.
I would also expect the students build upon the Glossary / Wiki entries from year to year. For example, if at the beginning of 6th grade I assigned a student "George Washington", it might be a simple entry like "First President of the United States", but by the end of 12th grade, after the students have completed a high school level US History course, I would expect the entry to be a lot more detailed.
Thanks for any help.
