It is important for instructors to learn more about their students in order to build rapport, customize the learning experience, and to gain feedback about their instruction. The "choice" activity on the Moodle platform allows instructors to create polls for their students to complete. Moodle's "survey" activity contains preloaded surveys including the Constructivist Online Learning Environment Survey as well as the Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey which will help you to learn more about your students.

There's the Choice and the Survey activities…that we can utilize.…First, let's take a look at the Choice activity.…If I want to add a Choice activity,…I first want to make sure editing is on.…And I need to select the section that it'll appear in.…I'll add this to The Communication Medium.…Here I'll click on Add an activity.…From here, I'll choose the Choice option.…And the first thing I need to do…
