The Moodle.org forums are a great way to learn about new approaches to accomplishing any task in Moodle. If you’re not sure how to start, Moodle.org is a great place to ask. Just be sure to be clear and provide enough information. Many of the posts get replies within an hour, and even if you’re not asking questions actively there’s plenty to be learned by following one or two interesting threads.
Recently a Moodler asked, “What are the best options for creating Geography Quizzes in Moodle?”
Two suggestions were made which could provide students a really great experience:
- Drag and Drop Markers: https://moodle.org/plugins/view/qtype_ddmarker | this question type allows students to draft markers to indicate key features on an image
- Drag and Drop onto Image: https://moodle.org/plugins/view/qtype_ddimageortext | you can use text and / or images as and create drop zones on a background image
Both of the question types are from the OU. Below is a video demonstration of the Drag and Drop onto Image (direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jDegx_ZqDE).
