GIFT Format for Quiz Items with Images

GIFT Format for Quiz Items with Images | creative moodle uses | Scoop.it

The GIFT format is a flexible and friendly format for creating quiz questions and importing them into Moodle. Among the different import options, I find that the GIFT format is the easiest to learn and best available if you are not using a proprietary quiz question test bank generator. All you need is a plain text editor (I recommend Notepad++) and some attention to detail. Did you also know that you can support images in your questions with the GIFT format? By knowing just a little HTML you can easily host your images on a public 3rd party site (like WordPress or Amazon Web Services S3) and insert them into any GIFT formatted items before you upload (this will save you server space and loads of time if you need to update the question image in the future – since there’s only one copy).

Paula Clough's insight:

Another way to import questions into Moodle question bank.  Very helpful if you have a lot of questions that have come from a publisher or out of another LMS..

How A Game Helps Disadvantaged Women and Children Around the World

How A Game Helps Disadvantaged Women and Children Around the World | creative moodle uses | Scoop.it

Half the Sky Movement is a transmedia initiative that was created to shed light on the struggles of mothers, young girls and their families in countries like Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, and Afghanistan.

 

What makes this initiative so appealing and powerful is how it combines different forms of media to share stories, raise awareness, and find solutions to a host of serious gender-based injustices.

Tracking Learners Activities: 10 Useful Reports Generated by Moodle LMS [Infographic]

Tracking Learners Activities: 10 Useful Reports Generated by Moodle LMS [Infographic] | creative moodle uses | Scoop.it

“ Report building is one of the crucial activities in any training process. It helps the training manager track the learner’s performance and training outcomes. Earlier, this process was done manually. However, with technological advancements, this process has been automated. Now, using a learning management system (LMS), training managers can generate reports with just a click. If you are using Moodle for your training activities, here is an info-graphic which lists 10 types of reports that can be generated by Moodle.”
