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 question that we're going to add into our question bank is another true false question. Only this time we're going to take advantage of the fact that all of our questions can contain HTML and thus any type of media that we want, let's began by making sure that our category is still set to Ecology, and then we'll click the button for create a new question. We'll select another true false question and then hit the Next button. The category of Ecology is already set, so our question name in this case is going to be True/False.
So that we know which movie that this question is associated with. For the Question text, let's go ahead and type in The animal depicted here is an Aplisina fistularis. Now since Aplisina fistularis is a proper scientific name, we should go ahead and select that text and then format it by italicizing it. We'll click our mouse at the end of the line and hit Enter/Return in order to go down to the next line. Now let's go ahead and add in the picture of an Aplisina fistularis.
So in our HTML toolbar, hit the tool for insert an image think like the button for find or upload an image than go to the Private files section go into a BIOL432 folder, go into the Images folder and then if you're following along in an earlier movie we created and uploaded a whole folder of images from DropBox. You can also find these in the Chapter 12 exercise files and you can upload them one by one if you need to. Go into the DropBox folder and the third item over here if we hover our mouse over top of it we can see the full name Aplisina_fistularis_colony.jpg, go ahead and select on that file and then click the button for Select this file.
For an image description we don't want to put anything too descriptive, because you remember this is inside of a quiz, so we wouldn't want to call out that this is an Aplisina. We'll just simply say that there's an image here, than hit the Insert button and now our question is set up. Let's go ahead and scroll down, we still want this question to be worth one point, we're going to go ahead and skip the general feedback this time. For the correct answer this is a true statement, so will select True and we'll skip providing any other feedback for now, go ahead and scroll all the way to the bottom and click the Save changes button.
Now we have two questions here in our question pool, our First Question and our True False question, let's go ahead and look and see what the True False question would look like by hitting the Preview icon of a little magnifying glass. When the page pops open we can see here is our text, our True False statement we have a nice big image for students to look at and then a place for them to select the correct answer, let's go ahead and select True Submit and finish and we're given the feedback that that is the correct answer. Excellent that exactly what we want it, go ahead and scroll down our page, click the Close Preview button and now we're ready to move on to the next question.
