Moodle 2.0 Tutorials: Setting up a Quiz

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.

Video in the Classsroom

With the advent of much smaller and simpler video and audio recorders capturing course content has become much easier and accessible. Here at the CRDC we have 2 Pocket Cameras available to Faculty who would like to use video in their class. Some faculty have used these to capture guest lectures so that students can access the content at a later date. Some have recorded introductions to course topics and sections so students can have a summary of information to be covered in upcoming classes. Where self evaluation is important student presentations can be captured and released to individual students. Whatever their purpose the videos can be uploaded to our video server and embedded into the U of L Learning Management System for easy access to students.

If you would like more info on how you can use video in your class please contact the CRDC.
