Gamification Does Not Equal Games, It Equals Engagement And Innovation

Gamification Does Not Equal Games, It Equals Engagement And Innovation | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
You have probably heard the definition:  Gamification is the concept of applying game mechanics and game design techniques to engage a target audience to change behavior, learn new skills or engage in innovation or problem solving skills. If an employee can learn new skills, be more engaged, and be innovative or increase problem-solving skills then why aren’t more companies embracing gamification?

Our Newest 3 Minute Tech Tool Tutorial: Screencast-O-Matic

Our Newest 3 Minute Tech Tool Tutorial: Screencast-O-Matic | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

"Screencasting, or capturing what you do on your computer (or tablet) in a video format while you narrate your actions, is one of the most powerful functions that modern computer technology has delivered to today’s educators."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 23, 3:37 PM

EmergingEdTech has been running a Try-a-Tool-a-Week Challenge and this week Screencast-O-Matic is the tool of the week. If you have not used this tool and are interested in doing screencasting (also known as screen capture) take the time to review this video.

The free version allows you to record up to 15 minutes, but you cannot edit the film. There is a paid version for $15 per year, which allows for editing and unlimited length! Screencast-O-Matic may be used as a web app, or you can download it (PC and Mac).

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, Today, 9:27 AM

This is one of my go-to tools.  I use it for so many things.  It's a great tool for tech support when you can share a screen with someone.  Make a quick video to model what they should be doing on their computer.

Tony Guzman's curator insight, Today, 9:39 AM

This article includes a video tutorial on Screencast-o-matic, a video capture tool that can help you create videos for your students to help them in their learning.

Moodle 2.9 QA Testing now over 95%

Moodle 2.9 QA Testing now over 95% | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
Moodle’s QA Testing round for 2.9 now looks to be over 95% complete with about 15 open tracker tickets left to be further developed, fixed, tested or peer reviewed. There is a short list of “must fix” items for Moodle’s 2.9 release pending as well.

Great work to the bug finders and QA testers who volunteered to try out the new features and validate that they were in working order. If you have not yet joined the effort and want to help get the release over the finish line you can get connected here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=311780

To review the open tickets check out http://goo.gl/0odk7D

A list of the ‘must fix’ items left to be resolved is available here: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL/fixforversion/14751/

Finally, if you’re just interested in trying out one of the new features in 2.9 (like the many in the quiz or highlighted here) you can demo a working version of 2.9 at http://qa.moodle.net/

New Quiz Feature in Moodle 2.9: item dependencies

New Quiz Feature in Moodle 2.9: item dependencies | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
Tim Hunt has published a quick discussion on a new feature coming to Moodle 2.9 which provides additional settings to control how quizzes display their questions to students. The particular settings help to limit visibility to quiz items until a student has met the criteria (kind of like a conditional release of questions within a quiz).

The dependencies are set up to prevent a student from seeing a question which might include context for an earlier item they need to answer.

You can check out this feature and the other cool features we covered recently [features in 2.9] soon in the upcoming release.

Read more about the dependency settings for quizzes at https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=310239#p1241781 and at https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-40990.

Once you've used multiple screens, it's hard to go back to using just one. Multiple displays are useful for more than just watching your two favorite sports teams at the same time (though, you can most certainly do that, too). Having two displays can actually increase your productivity a great deal. That's right, if you…

How to Get Hesitant Students and Teachers to Use Moodle

How to Get Hesitant Students and Teachers to Use Moodle | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
Moodle allows teachers and students to use a streamlined, simple and efficient interface. It is a platform that allows education to move online. With the influx of students preferring to work online, and the addition of online apps such as Turnitin and Google Docs, Moodle is a valuable program to use.

However, teachers and students alike are often still reluctant to use it. This can be due to a host of reasons – whether they are intimidated by the software, refuse to use technology no matter how useful it may be, or simply because it is an unfamiliar program that comes with a learning curve.

Despite these reasons, Moodle is a relatively easy program to use and familiarize yourself with. It is a program for those who are unfamiliar with technology or have a difficult time grasping new concepts. The learning curve is not steep and can be learned quickly. Once users become comfortable with the interface, Moodle proves to be a worthwhile program. If you are not convinced, here are some reasons below to persuade you to consider using the program.
