I finally cracked the code. I can now create Quizlet vocabulary activities and then import them into my Moodle Glossaries. I love creating word lists in Quizlet and embedding the iframe code in my Moodle resources. However there are times when I want to use the same words in my glossaries. Now I can use VLEtools.com to create an XML file to import. This will allow me to do more!
How cool is this? You can embed models and simulations into your web authoring using tools from the concord consortium. Or, have your students complete the inquiry lesson online at the Molecular Workbench site. They can print their results (save as a pdf) and turn them in to you. I am also thinking they cany copy and paste this report into an online Moodle submission.

Here is a trick I learned for capturing these videos ahead of time and playing them off your hard drive. I like to incorporate them into my presentation software. This is also a handy way to share youtube content if it is blocked at school. You can download it at home and share it offline.
Today I found myself trying to put together a bunch of links to support a lesson my students are completing in Earth Science about how different wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation are used to study the universe. There are some amazing resources posted on PBS Teachers Domain that I like to share with my students to enrich my presentations with video. Many of these are now interactive images that are better suited to students exploring and manipulating on their own device.
