Mike Carrington's insight:
A nice introduction to the topic - and badges are integrated into Moodle, so could be used for teaching and also for encouraging staff to learn to use Moodle effectively.

Mike Carrington's insight:

Too many to put in individually.

Lots of chemistry question types (although the easyochem questions haven't been modified for M v2.8 yet - and I'm not sure if they have been converted to JavaScript either).

Moodle Plugins Directory: Drag and Drop Organic Chemistry Nomenclature

Moodle Plugins Directory: Drag and Drop Organic Chemistry Nomenclature | Using Moodle to Teach Chemistry | Scoop.it

Students construct the names of organic molecules by dragging and dropping.

 

Learning organic chemistry nomenclature is not extremely difficult and most students acquire the basics quickly.  Unfortunately a good percentage of students mangle the format, punctuation and/or spelling, losing valuable points on exams and quizzes.  With this in mind a new question type was designed to reinforce IUPAC nomenclature with an emphasis on formatting and punctuation.  Students must construct names by dragging and dropping parent chains, prefixes, suffixes and punctuation symbols to form the correct name.

#4 ~ set up backpack (0-2 min.); put a Moodle badge into it (2 min. to end)

Skip #5. It didn't work!!

great instructions

In Moodle 2.6, it is really easy. Check out the screen shot. The tutorial is for older versions of Moodle. This is one great reason to upgrade Moodle. Newer versions also include a direct link to pictures at Wikimedia, and Drop Box integration.
