Moodle experts Tim States and Emmett Dulaney show how courses can be enhanced with interactive exercises using the Choice activity.
Sometimes the simplest features in a course management system are easily overlooked or dismissed. One of those features in Moodle is the Choice activity, which at first glance can appear as too stark to merit scrutiny.
This feature, which — for good or bad — lacks any type of built-in grading function, allows a teacher to create a number of options from which students are limited to choosing but one. It also lets the teacher limit the number of students who can select that option and set date ranges during which students might be able to change their responses prior to closing (as opposed to locking them in with their first choice).
