One Quiz File, Several Modes of Delivery
Herbert, John C.
European Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL), Paper presented at the European Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (EuroCALL) Annual Conference (Nottingham, UK, Aug 31-Sep 3, 2011)
This report offers online course designers, particularly those keen on using Moodle CMSs, a means of diversifying accessibility to their educational materials via multiple modes of delivery that do not require the creation of numerous files and formats for just one activity. The author has made contributions to the development of an open source module for Moodle known as QuizPort and has collaborated with the creator of QuizPort to explore methods for using the module such that content added to it can be more smoothly delivered via smart phone, tablet, or handheld game console. Key points to consider when designing online content for a variety of devices are addressed.
