Creator notes:

Moodle was used as a research tool by Oxford University for their research paper: "Assessing the accuracy and quality of Wikipedia entries compared to popular online encyclopaedias: A comparative preliminary study across disciplines in English, Spanish and Arabic". One of the project conclusions was that a series of manageable, small-scale studies of quality in the future would be worthwhile. This downloadable course contains the feedback tools which can help ensure consistency of approach in future research projects.
