Wiki Based Dynamic Quizzes: A Bridge between Online Students and Instructors?
Yarbrough, Jillian Ruth
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v20 May 2018
Constructing a meaningful learning network with online students can be challenging for many reasons. First, because there is literally a distance between the instructor and the student, and second, because the majority of online students rarely communicate specific details to their instructors about what aspects of the course are effective or ineffective. Without student observations or clear instructor/student communication, as distance educators, how do we know if our online classrooms are truly supporting our students' learning experiences? To address this concern and increase student engagement, Wiki based dynamic quizzes were designed and integrated into online classrooms. The following paper will discuss: history and definition of Wikis, review of literature, three case study experiences, suggestions for seamless dynamic quiz application in the online classroom and conclusion.
