Below you’ll find a video by Mike Walters (@red20twenty) which showcases his design and use of the lesson activity in Moodle to try to stave off the “scroll of death”. The lesson is an all inclusive exercise that includes complete instructions, a quiz, 3 assignments and additional resources (even PDF downloads) of the resources students need to complete it.
Using the Lesson activities navigation options he’s created quite a great activity (which I’m sure takes a little bit of training/trial & error to setup and configure). You can read more about Mike’s reasons for using the Lesson module at his blog: http://www.redtwenty.net/using-lessons-in-moodle/ (which is a great resource).
