Moodle Linking to Sugar Activities

       make it easy for students to upload work straight to Moodle servers
           with and w/o logins?
       reproduce enthusiasm found on Scratch for programming with etoys. turtle art, writing etc
       activity uploads
           etoys etc
               encourage students to tell stories using speak
               encourage creation of FAQs
               nice for mind mapping but it's clumsy
   where to begin
           why python?
               Nubae knows it
           hello world
           nubae's pyclic?
               nice to get that into Pippy examples
           start here with a basic test prompt interface
               sample UI though far from perfect
           question builder
   New activity
       quiz builder and admin
               students write and answer questions
                   teacher or expert volunteers act as editors and gate keepers
                   put the onus of thinking on students!
           flow description
           student writes X number of questions as determined by teacher
               Question types
                   multiple choice =MC
                   short answer= SA
                   true/false= T/F
           submits questions via Python or other UI to moodle db
           student is now qualified to take test
           while taking test student can 
               see if question was student created or teacher created
                   this will increase interest in the question and who is the student
               can suggest better answer
               can suggest a better question
           student scores for FITB/ SA/ MC/ Cloze can be returned immediately
           short answer and essay questions can go back to teacher or back to community for further evaluation
               use volunteers to help teacher grade
       XO users
       non XO users
   viewing of materials
       only logged in to moodle server
       child security etc
           can we pull the machine specs XO or otherswise
           version of Sugar?
       user ID
           encourage firstname, last initial and maybe weight
           should tell us country and city... 
           maybe that could be the intial log in UserID? last 3 digits of IP?
           school name
           teacher name
           class name
       nice to have something like this
           a tool that would allow lots of users to see and build upon other ideas in real time
           gobby like but with a diagramming UI
               connect the dots
               explode certain ideas
               annotate freely with ownership
