The Moodle Lesson Activity truly is an amazing content creator

The Moodle Lesson Activity truly is an amazing content creator | eLearning resources | Scoop.it

Not many Moodlers use the Lesson Activity in Moodle.  Mostly because it’s neither a brilliant quiz engine nor a replacement for the book module.  But when you combine both these elements and spend a bit of time on the design you can create engaging, interactive learning packages that can stand their own against popular content creation tools, and best of all, it’s authored natively in Moodle.

 

 Let’s look at the benefits/features of using the lesson module:

* Include a file popup – such as a supporting word doc or PDF, similar to what Storyline lets you do with resources
* Display a progress bar (which by the way can be styled to high heaven with CSS to look funky with gradients)
* Display an on-going score to learners so they can see their grade
* Can be set to work like a slideshow/stage with fixed height so it feels more like a Powerpoint or SCORM package
* Can be a timed activity
* Can be password protected
* Availability can be based upon completing a previous lesson – very powerful feature
* Availability can also be based upon the time spent on a previous lesson – perfect for Online Guided Learning Hours (UK requirement)
* Allows for multiple attempts and limited retries (fully configurable)
* In-built quiz with multiple question types
* Ability to import questions from other platforms
* Branching and clustering – allows for random quiz slides
* Workflows and pathways – learners can see different slides depending on the answers to a question – can be made interactive and personal.
* Can be linked to outcomes for improved reporting
* Has its own reporting tools
* Links with the Moodle gradebook

PBL é um bom caminho para mudar o jeito de dar aulas. Envolver os alunos no 'fazer', complementando e orientando, possibilita maior assimilação dos conteúdos e conceitos. 

Rachel McGrath's curator insight, February 15, 2014 5:17 PM

Clear explanation of PBL and how it actually helps students in comparison to the traditional way of teaching.

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight: 

An interesting search engine directly used for educational purposes. It creates a mediated yet reciprocial intimacy between students and teachers outside the classroom environment. I'm quite fascinated with how students can engage in different lessons or levels according to the different teaching they would prefer.:) But alas! It would take quite a while before it kicks off here.

A teacher shares their experience with Nearpod, a free app that allows you to "present an interactive lesson on the students’ iPads."

Later in the post he states "The excitement, engagement, and of course, every teacher’s favorite word, data proved this app to be useful. I was able to go into the Nearpod website with my log-in credentials (free account) and access all the information gathered during the lesson. I could see the Draw Its each student submitted and create graphs on student responses."

There are a number of apps that allow you to share resources. Consider checking out Nearpod if you have not yet tried it.

iPads or any kind of tablet for that matter.

Justin Henriks's curator insight, April 26, 2015 7:36 PM

Some really good thoughts! We certainly do need to change the way we use software/apps and allow students to have greater power in deciding which apps to use and how they use them. As teachers, we are not always the expert on how to use apps!

The Flipped Classroom by Mike King on Prezi

The flipped classroom provides avenues for teachers to become facilitators of learning & move away from the sage on a stage approach to teaching. The goal is to extend learning time conversation outside of class through threaded discussion.
