Want tips for Moodle? 

In a recent Vlog, my colleague, Carl discussed the new ability in Moodle 2.9 to set the pass grade directly within the Quiz activity settings.

Moodle 2.9 also introduced some additional features to the Quiz activity to further enhance the user experience.

1.     Add headings to your quiz pages

A section heading can be displayed to your learners at the top of each page in the quiz, if you require. Via the Edit quiz page in a quiz activity, you now have the option to add a line of text, to give clear context to the set of questions being presented to your learners.

Sections headings can also be added to subsequent pages too, if required, via the Add button:

2.     Shuffle within sections

Moodle 2.9 has also introduced the ability to shuffle questions within a page too. Again this is done via the Edit quiz page:

3.     Conditional Questions

If Quiz Settings: Question Behaviour is set to Interactive or Immediate Feedback, then the Edit Quiz page provides additional functionality whereby specific questions can be locked (ie. not presented to the learner) until the preceding question has been answered:

This is how it looks to the student in the quiz:

These are just three more great reasons to upgrade to Moodle 2.9!

If you’re responsible for managing e-learning programmes you’ll know what a Learning Management System (LMS) is. If you’ve attended any learning fairs in recent years you may have seen the term LXP popping up.

It stands for Learning Experience Platform and represents a whole new range of possibilities to expand the way your audiences learn.

OK, so here are the things made possible with an LXP:

Open Badges: A simple way to improve learner engagement

For anyone managing e-learning programmes learner engagement is surely a key measure of success. You may have hundreds of people in different departments or teams but all of them are likely to appreciate recognition for their efforts. That’s where Open Badges come in.

Open Badges enable your learners to get verifiable proof for the knowledge, skills and achievements they have developed through your e-learning programme.

Engage your learners with gamification in Moodle

The term gamification has been around for years, but what is it? Simply, it’s about bringing elements from game design into a non-game context and there are good reasons to do so.

Many people who’ve been in the workforce for years will have got into gaming as children but even for the non-gamers amongst us introducing gamification into your Moodle LMS can make a big difference (and implementing it can be much easier than you think!).
