Using Moodle Course Reports to Track Student Engagement

Moodle LMS has a variety of course reports, such as course participation report, activity completion report and logs. Course teachers can adjust multiple parameters, and filter different data by course activity, by student, by a designated time period, in order to fit their needs in tracking students’ engagement in different stages of the course. This workshop will demonstrate how to generate the course reports to track the student engagement.

Using Quiz for Assessment in Moodle LMS

Moodle quiz accommodates many question types, including multiple choices, true-false, matching and essay. Questions are saved in the question bank and can be re-used in other Moodle courses. This workshop will introduce the use of Quiz to conduct assessment, demonstrate how to grade, give written comment and release the grade in the gradebook. With hands-on practice, participants will learn how to create questions and quiz paper, manage the results and re-use the questions.

Using Discussion Forum in Moodle LMS and Text-mining

The discussion forum in Moodle enables teachers and students to communicate online to enrich blended learning. Teachers can set up and configure online forums for students to engage in pre-class tasks and post-class discussion. In addition, we will introduce a bilingual text-mining platform which helps teachers understand students’ learning status in pre-teaching, post-teaching or during the teaching process from their forum postings.

In this workshop, you will have hands-on practice in setting up Turnitin assignment, viewing similarity reports submitted by students and giving comments online.
