The Scratchpad plugin by Pukunui and IFES

By  Tengku Alauddin

Scratchpad is a new open-source/free Moodle plugin developed by Pukunui and funded by the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). It is compatible with Moodle 3.10 or later versions. Based on the ever-so-popular Journal plugin, the Scratchpad plugin allows students to write their reflections on courses and download them.


This plugin is essentially a learning reflection plugin for students, normally used after the completion of a course. A teacher can post questions for students to pen down their thoughts and complete their reflections on the said topic/area.

These questions could either be standalone or linked to other Scratchpads in the course. After completing the reflection, students could download the entire answer for their records.

The plugin is designed for personal, private reflections. The students’ replies are not viewable by other users, including those with the teacher role.
