Moodle Activity Module: Dynamic Game design

Moodle activity module to create dynamic games based on the question bank.

 

Students procastinating too much? Are they playing games instead of studying? Well now you can motivate them by allowing them to do both at once!

 

Quizventure is an activity module that loads quiz questions from the course it's added to. The possible answers come down as space ships and you have to shoot the correct one.

Why use multiple-choice questions?

Why use multiple-choice questions? | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Included this in the Moodle section as I think it is a welcome reminder and fairly powerful argument to put to those "multiple choice quizzes aren't really effective assessment" people.

Return of the Random short -answer matching Moodle question type | Moodle Blog

Return of the Random short -answer matching Moodle question type | Moodle Blog | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

In older versions of Moodle there was a question type called “Random short-answer matching” It was like the matching question type except that the answers to be matched actually came from previously made short-answer questions. It stopped working three years ago and has only just been fixed (thanks to French Moodling quiz enthusiast Jean-Michel Védrine) This week the question type has been put back into Moodle, so if you have the lastest Moodle versions, 2.5.5 and 2.6.2, you will be able to use it.

 

Many people however only started using Moodle recently and won’t even know of is prior existence. So this post is just to explain it and introduce it. Jean-Michel has added some detailed documentation on the Random short-answer matching question type.

 

If you have Moodle 2.5.5 or Moodle 2.6.2 then when you add a quiz question you will see this new type available:

 

There are two things to be aware of. (1) You can’t just add this question and make it there and then, like any other question type,  because you need first to have some short-answer questions pre-made and (2) those questions need to be connected in some way, share a theme.

Really this idea for consolidation. Having sub categories is of course key to the task

Creating Moodle Quiz questions in Microsoft Word

Creating Moodle Quiz questions in Microsoft Word | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Moodle innovation and programming hacks by Malaysia programmer and teacher, Frankie Kam.

 

This first appeared years ago with Word 2003 and now it back. Will it work with Word 2010? How much quicker can it actually be?

 

Time to investigate... 

 

Spent about 2hrs on it. For Word 2010 you need to use the CopyPasteEditUsethisoneforWord2010 file (found that eventually in a forum)

 

All question items just about worked. The adding in image feature was very hit and miss and the formatting it leaves is not great (centred after title).

 

Without doubt though if you want to create quick multiple choice questions this is by far the easiest tool but it HAS definite limitations!

 

I guess you can always go into the question and alter formatting after?
