Teachers, learn how to create engaging courses with Moodle 2.4 and get your students excited about online learning. In this course, Moodle expert Mary Cooch shows you all the steps to creating classes for K–12 and college settings. Learn how to set up Moodle so it's just right for your classroom, add course materials (including videos, widgets, and web links), get your students enrolled, and start fostering collaborative learning with blogs and chats. Plus, learn to build quizzes, grade assignments, and get student feedback. Mary also shows you how to back up a copy of your course to use again the next year, or share with others.
It's vital, as teachers, that we get our students to evaluate our teaching so we can improve. Moodle offers three ways of getting feedback: choice, feedback, and survey. In this video, we'll just have a brief overview of these three, and how they may be used. So to access them, we need to go to Moodle's activity chooser. Which we do with the editing turned on, either by clicking the button top-right, or by clicking the link in the settings block. And then we click, add an activity or resource.
You'll see that in the activity chooser, there is the option to click on choice, feedback, and survey. Now if you don't see feedback, it's because it's been disabled by default, and you may need to ask your administrator to enable it. So each of these deals with feedback in a slightly different way. If we first of all click choice, over on the right, you're given some examples and suggestions as to how to use it in your teaching. Choice is basically online voting, where you present the students with a question and then you give them radio buttons and they select one of them.
I'm going to open a new window and show you an example of a choice in our film studies course. So, we're asking our students to vote for the movie we want our next chart to focus on, and the students will choose one of those radio buttons. If we go back, and look at feedback, this is what we would expect a typical survey or questionnaire to be. In other words, you the teacher can create your own questions to find out what your students think of your course.
I'm going to open up another window and show you an example of a course feedback. So, we're asking them to select how useful they found the course, and to type some text about certain aspects of the course they found helpful or challenging. Finally, if we click on survey, this option does not allow you to create your own questions, but instead it presents you with pre-made questions. If you've ever heard of COLLES or ATTLS type surveys, which allow you to get data from your students to help them learn better, and you to reflect on your teaching, then this would be useful to you.
If you haven't heard of those types of survey, then it might be more useful if you use feedback. So to conclude, we've looked at three ways of finding out how our students think about our course, and getting feedback from them. Choice is useful if you want to give students a number of simple voting options without being able to add any texts themselves. Feedback allows you to create customizable questionnaires with your own questions, which can include students typing and text responses.
While Survey provides you with ready-made questions that you can use to gauge your students learning styles, and reflect on your own teaching.
