Abstract


Information gap activities are popular with language teachers, but how do you use them in a CALL setting. Moodle is a powerful and flexible learning management system and by combing many groups, completion and restrict access seting it is possible to move your favorite info gap activities online.

In this workshop attendees will learn how to create groups/groupings quickly and easily. They will also learn about how to set the different access restriction and completion criteria to guide students through an activity and allow them to access only their part of the information gap. Finally, they will create an information gap activity using the database module.

Having some knowledge of Moodle (high beginner to intermediate) would be helpful.
