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.
Three activities that are available to you inside of Moodle, in order to collect information and feedback from students are the Choice, Feedback and Survey Modules. The Choice activity is one where you're able to ask students a single multiple-choice question that the students can go in and select their answer, and all data from all of the students in your course are all collated together into one easy-to-use interface. The Feedback Module is more of what most of us think of as a traditional survey.
This module allows the teacher to go in and create their own custom survey that they give to the students. This survey can have multiple different questions and even multiple different question types. Again, all data collected from the students can then be collated and analyzed. The final type is the Survey, and the survey activity is one that distributes one of several different types of standardized surveys, such as the Constructivist Online Learning Environment Survey or the Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey.
So when you want to start collecting data and feedback from your students, the first thing you need to decide is what type of activity do you want, do you want a single multiple Choice question, Feedback, a Traditional User Created Survey or a Standardized Survey. Over the next several movies, we will step through using each of these.
