Exploring concept tagging in Moodle: Myse Elmadani presents at the CSSE Summer Research Showcase

Myse Elmadani presenting her research at the CSSE Summer Research ShowcaseOn Monday, Myse Elmadani presented her ICTG summer project, "Exploring Concept Tagging in Moodle", at the 2009-10 CSSE Summer Research Showcase. This project is part of a bigger ICTG project, intended to extend Moodle using research conducted at ICTG. In this part of the project, Myse developed a Moodle plug-in where teachers can create a list of concept tags (either manually or by importing them from their glossary) to tag each resource or activity. This adds a certain amount of domain knowledge to the system, enabling students to easily find resources relating to a particular concept.

"Moodle is a great system for managing class resources, but does not currently have the ability to provide students with any help relating to the domain they are studying", says Amali Weerasinghe, one of the project designers. "This project is a step in that direction."

This project is created and managed by ICTG, including Amali Weerasinghe, Moffat Mathews, Jay Holland, and project leader Tanja Mitrovic. If you have any queries regarding this project, please feel free to contact us.
