The Anatomy of Great e-Learning Quiz Questions | EDUCATION | Scoop.it
Quiz questions are a vital part of e-Learning content and a great way to assess knowledge acquisition.

 

One overarching rule to keep in mind as you are writing quiz questions is that they need to be clear. Grammar and parallel structure are important; they go a long way to helping your learners do their best. But there’s a lot more than phrasing that goes into a test question. Check out these tips!

A cool free tool for adding interactive tags to your videos. Now you can load your video with additional information. Tags get attached to moving people and objects automatically, you just need to add your info.


Many thanks for the suggestion to Alfredo Corell.
