Making better use of the LMS: A case for online quizzes

In this seminar, Dr Brian Cook, School of Geography, will recount his experiences using the LMS to deliver online quizzes to a large third year subject. The work was funded by a Learning and Teaching Initiative grant, which explored whether online quizzes could be used to improve classroom participation, satisfy student expectations, and shorten the teaching-feedback loop, all while reducing academic workload. The seminar will review the development, implementation, refinement, and results from the project. It will also provide advice pertaining to the upcoming 2015 Teaching and Learning funding opportunities, in which the quizzes will be an option for repurposing past eLearning projects.
