Title題名 : Moodle course on GIFT for students and teachers
Type種類 : Showcase (90 mins)
Category部類 : Individual presentation
Language言語 : English
Abstract要約 :

Students in many fields can benefit by creating quizzes as part of their learning experience. Creating quizzes requires students to consider their learning from new perspectives, self-assess their own understanding, and communicate their understanding to others in creative ways. The process can also be an empowering productive and communicative exercise. 

For students, or teachers, the GIFT format is one of the most accessible methods to write and import questions into Moodle, especially when combined with question templates. It avoids the complexities of XML or programming macros. The GIFT format does not relying on plug-ins which may or may not be available or updated.

This presentation first describes the contents and use of a Moodle-based training course on GIFT for formatting and importing questions into Moodle and some elements of question bank management. This step-by-step Moodle course covers the different types of questions which may or may not be imported through GIFT formatting into Moodle, how to understand and use GIFT formatting symbols, provide feedback, give partial credit, and other essentials.

Using an authentic ESL class as one example, this presentation will also discuss how teachers of many subjects can employ authoring questions as a learning tool. It will also touch on its value in ESL classrooms where the language learning experience is also magnified through the question writing process.

The course discussed, created by the presenter, is freely available on the MAJHUB to interested teachers.
