In the database activity module there is one preset to chose from, an image gallery.
At present in the system admin settings there is no option to add others.
Suggest: provide several more built in presets.
(Eg, the encyclopaedia preset provided here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=87560)
Rationale: the database is a powerful tool, but not friendly enough for the new or average user. Provision of a few template presets to start from would help.
If a system admin could add 3-4 well designed presets to choose from for all uses, this would be a good step forward.
