Moodle has the ability to create robust quizzes that can be used to assess your students. Quizzes can be written in a lab during class time, as a scheduled test within the UofL testing centre, or as take home quiz. It becomes your preference as to where and how to test your students, but the quiz module within moodle can help facilitate your quiz, and can be modified to meet most of your testing preferences.
If you will be using the testing centre, your exam must be booked in by the CRDC before the exam date.
The instructions in this tutorial will cover how to add a quiz activity, and will cover all the attributes that can be modified within the quiz settings. If you have already created a quiz and are looking to add questions, please see the question bank resources and the question type resources.
Fall 2011 the University of Lethbridge is going live with their new Learning Management System, Moodle. Mark Pijl Zieber is currently involved in the Moodle migration prototyping his current courses.
Virtual Challenge: Creating Quality E-Courses
Tuesday, January 25, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at the CRDC(L1126)
There’s a lot more to building online courses than digitizing text and adding a few videos. Online course designers are learning more about how to incorporate quick assessments that personalize the learning experience for students, how to keep students’ interest with video and simulations, and how to integrate gaming into their courses. The lessons being learned by course designers are significantly changing the way a successful online course is created for today’s students.

If you’re looking for advice on how to make an easy transition from your current LMS to a new one, you can read countless blogs and articles spouting broad generalizations or you can ask people whose institutions actually get the job done. To better understand the challenges surrounding the migration of college courses, we will speak with college instructional designers and faculty who have designed and implemented a course migration path from their previous LMS to CampusCruiser LMS.
If you are planning a review of your schools LMS in the months to come, you owe it to yourself to join this live webinar to hear technologists from Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) as they share the results from their course conversion from WebCT to CampusCruiser LMS and identify what really works when migrating to a new LMS.
Presented by: Dr. Christopher Ostwinkle, Director of Distance Learning, Northeast Iowa Community College
Moderated by: Linda Briggs, contributing editor, Campus Technology
Webinar can be viewed in the CRDC/CAETL Learning Lab (L1126) Tuesday, September 28 from 12 noon until 1:00 pm
This tool has the potential to allow more freedom in classroom instruction than your standard presentation tools like PowerPoint of Keynote. Through a non-linear approach Prezi could help foster more open discussion and better engage your students.
Here is more info from their Website:
Prezi is zooming sketches on a digital napkin.
It’s visualization and storytelling without slides. Your ideas live on stage and on the web.
Have you ever wondered about presenting your thoughts as free as they come? Ever got tired of creating a slide show? It’s been said, that the best innovations come from people who are unhappy with the tools they use. We realized that our ideas won’t fit into slides anymore. Putting together creative thinking and technology expertise, we have created Prezi, a living presentation tool.
