Oodle-Moodle

by Tom Murdock - Saturday, October 4, 2003, 6:50 AM
 
A symptom or psychoses prompted by too much Moodling. Oodle-Moodle often manifests itself in relationships that have been stunted while Moodling. Husbands, wives, and children may ask an oodled soul to "step away from the machine" and to communicate once again with hand gestures and verbal cues rather than emoticons.

Might be contagious.

An Outcome is like any other grade except that it can be applied to multiple activities. When the activity is marked, a mark should be given for the submission itself and for the outcome.


Outcomes are newly introduced in Moodle 1.9


basically implements a way to connect outcome statements with Scales.
Scales themselves are connected to courses and their activities.

Scales:{Refuser, Drifter, Searcher, Guardian, Resolver}
