How-To: Link Google Forms to QR Codes -ClassTechTips.com

How-To: Link Google Forms to QR Codes -ClassTechTips.com | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
I’ve shared some of the reasons that I love Google Forms, including how they can be used to collect assessment data.  Google Forms can also be used for students to turn in information.  They might fill out a Google Form to submit a book recommendation, request extra help, or to complete an interest survey.

Google Forms have very long web addresses and it would be unreasonable to expect students to type in the whole thing correctly.  You can make the Google Form link smaller by using a URL shortener like bit.ly or goo.gl.  Another option is to connect the link to a QR code.  This way students can scan the QR code with an app like i-nigma on their mobile device and they’ll be taken directly to the Google Form.

Shannon K. Steffen's curator insight, Today, 8:00 AM

How much your site was impacted by Penguin 3.0 depends on the industry you’re in, the rankings you have, and the competition you’re sharing the SERP with (and potentially lots of other unknown factors).

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 8:24 AM

(From the article): How much your site was impacted by Penguin 3.0 depends on the industry you’re in, the rankings you have, and the competition you’re sharing the SERP with (and potentially lots of other unknown factors).

 

You will never know for sure what happened unless you keep your eyes on Google. We will certainly do the same and share it with you if we spot anything out of the ordinary.

The Pivotal Role of the Administrator in Using the LMS Effectively

The Pivotal Role of the Administrator in Using the LMS Effectively | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Moodle is a very powerful LMS, used by several organizations to manage their training programs. This incredible software is ranked as the #1 LMS product by the E-learning Guild, in terms of market share. A majority of learning management needs can be met in a cost-effective manner, using this open-source software.

Administrators play a key role in using Moodle effectively. Once the LMS is configured according to the needs of the organization, he will be responsible for all tasks pertaining to the LMS. The administrator has to manage existing course and users, as per the requirement and add new courses or course categories. Adding a course to the LMS is not as easy as it seems. He needs to configure all necessary settings such as restricting access to certain users, ensuring access only after the specified conditions are met, making courses available only after the receipt of payment (if the organization sells the course) and so on. The administrator has to test the course in all browsers and ensure that all functionalities are working fine. He also needs to check the access restrictions (if applicable).

Here are some of the duties of an administrator.

- Add or remove user
- Create a course
- Give limited access to managers and learners
- Change default settings of an LMS
- Alter default roles of a particular user
- Add extra user-profile fields
- Hide existing courses from learner
- Create course reports
- Create the “number of attempts” report
- Download the user list
- Download grade reports for individual courses
- Change passwords for all users

donhornsby's curator insight, December 28, 8:12 AM

(From the article): In conclusion, here's how to optimize pages like a pro: Look at your most visited pages, figure out why users are there, give them what they want, and ask them for an action in return. Regardless of your most-visited pages or even the nature of your website, you can create more engaged users.

You’re in the business of not just dissemination information, but demanding a response. The knowledge you impart requires that users response. Ask for it.
