In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Now as I ask our students an open-ended question where they're able to just freeform type in, whatever type of feedback that they would like to provide to us. So in order to do that we'll hit the dropdown menu for select for our questions, we're going to select the Longer text answer. Now this is a question that we don't necessarily need to require our students to be able to provide feedback for, so we'll go ahead and leave the Required box unchecked. For the Question text let's ask the students to Please use the space provided to give us any additional feedback about your experience at MRC.
For the Label we'll simply put Additional Feedback. The Width parameter controls how wide the field is that the students are going to be able to enter text into. The default value of 30 should be sufficient, and the number of lines that are available should also be sufficient at 5. This question is not dependent on any other item, although this is a great question type to ask for additional feedback if a student would just select an item of say other in some kind of a choice feedback and here you could have a follow-up question that would allow them to provide you additional feedback about their previous choice.
But in this case we're just going to have an open-ended question, so we're going to leave dependent item not set, same thing for dependent value and Position 5 is perfect for a type of feedback questionnaire. So go ahead and click the Save question button and let's go ahead and scroll down to the bottom in our list so we can see how this is going to look on our page. Here we have a blank for our students to be able to type-in their responses. One other thing that I want to point out. This is the first question that we've created that's not been a required question. Now if we look over here on the right -hand side, we can see that some of our questions have a yellow circle with an exclamation point in them, well this question does not.
If we hover our mouse over this icon we can see that it's simply a toggle to be able to turn each question to be either required or not. So if we later change our mind and we want this question to be required, we simply check the button and then when we scroll back down, we see that this is now a required question. If we decide again that we don't want it to be required, we simply click the exclamation point and that question is no longer required by our students to be able to complete. Okay, our survey is looking to be in pretty good shape right now.
In the next movie we're going logout of our current user account log in as one of our student accounts that we set up, complete the survey, and then log back in as ourselves so that we can see what the results look like.
