The Moodle quiz and glossary modules are great, but entering all of your questions/entries can take up a lot of time when doing them all through the web interface. It is possible to import questions into your quiz (and entries to the glossary) by uploading an XML file containing them, but XML is a tricky thing if you’re not familiar with it.
The Moodle XML Converter helps you out with this. Simply add your questions to it in a readable text format and it will convert them into the code you need to import into your quiz. For example, you can quickly put together your quiz questions in a format like:
multichoice Question 1 1) TextAnswer 1 2) TextAnswer 2 3) TextAnswer 3 Answer: 2 Question 2 1. TextAnswer 1 2. TextAnswer 2 3. TextAnswer 3 Answer: 3
Save it as a text file, and then head over to moodle.site5.com to turn it into the XML file you need. Really nice time saving tool, I like it a lot.
