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.
The next type of activity to have a look at is the Feedback activity. Now this activity is most closely related to what most teachers would consider as a traditional survey. You can go in and you can create any number of different questions using different types from Multiple choice, to true/false to open-ended questions, and we will create many of these over the next couple of movies. But in this movie we need to ask the students to provide us some feedback for the research station where we are going for a spring break trip to Belize. So what we want to do is we want to scroll down in our page to Week 9 and simply click on the Add an activity dropdown menu and select Feedback from that menu.
When the page loads, simply click inside of the Name field and type in University of Belize- Marine Research Center Feedback. Then in the Description let's type in Use this form to provide feedback to our host at the University of Belize's Marine Research Center. All feedback will be recorded Anonymously. Then go ahead and scroll down and the next thing we can set up is the Timing. We can choose to Open this feedback activity at a particular date and time if we check this box and then set up the date and time here.
We could then choose to close the activity, meaning it would no longer be available to the students, by checking this box and setting up its date and time here. I want to make sure that this activity is available to our students at any time. So I'll go ahead and uncheck the box. Next, if we scroll down we can get to the Feedback options section. Here we can choose how our feedback is going to be recorded, whether it's recorded anonymously for each user or if the user's name is tracked along with all of their feedback. In this case, we have told the students that their feedback will be recorded anonymously.
So we will leave it set to Anonymous. Next, we can choose whether or not we want to show any analysis after the page is submitted. Many times it's very helpful to create little mini surveys embedded as part of your course and you want to provide the students immediate feedback based on the voting that they're doing inside of their course. In that case you would ant to set this option to Yes, but for our use here, we are going to go ahead and leave it set to No. Next, you can choose whether or not you want to Send email notification out after the user completes the exam. There is no need for that right now, so we are going to go ahead and leave this one set to No.
You could also choose if you wanted students to be able to submit Multiple copies of this survey. In this case we want to make sure that each student is only able to submit their feedback one time,, and then we are going to transfer all of that feedback back to our host, back at the University of Belize. So we are going to leave Multiple submissions also set to No. The next option would allow us to turn on Automatic numbering of all of our questions. We are just going to create a few questions in this feedback so we are not going to need to worry about auto-numbering. So we will go ahead and leave that turned off for right now.
Scroll down on the page and now we can provide the students with some kind of response after they complete this feedback activity. So I will simply click into the box and type in Thank you for providing feedback. If we had a Web address that we wanted to direct the students to after they completed the feedback, we can enter that URL in right here. In our case, after the students complete the feedback, we want to just have them return back to the main course page, and so that will be the default action. So I'll go ahead and leave this option blank for now. Go ahead and scroll down and now we have our Common module settings.
We are not going to require any groups on this. We want to make sure that the activity is always available to the students. So we are going to leave the Visibility set to Show and we are not going to worry about an ID number. Next, let's scroll down and we can choose whether or not we want to Restrict access. We are not going to have any restricted access on this. So we will simply click the Save and return to course button. When we return back to our course, let's go ahead and move the Feedback module in one by clicking the Move Right button and then let's go ahead and take a look at the Feedback module. So, I am going to go ahead and click on the Feedback and the first page gives us an overview of the setup that we have.
We have the title of the survey, how many Submitted answers, any Questions that we've had, these are currently set to 0, we have the Description of the feedback, we have a listing that is going to describe the page after the student completes the feedback, and there is a link to Answer the questions. There are also tabs that we can go into to be able to Edit the questions. There is a Template of we want to build one of these Feedback modules and then convert it into a template to be able to use over and over throughout our course. Next, there is a tab for Analysis where we can take and analyze all of the data that comes back in.
we can even export that data out to Microsoft Excel. And the last tab allows us to show any responses that the students have submitted to us. Let's go ahead and return back to the Overview tab. and in the next movie we will begin creating our questions for this Feedback module.
