Resetting quizzes

Captivate 2019 –

I am trying something and I am fairly certain it’s not possible, but perhaps someone has a solution. I never built this kind of project before.

I have a large project.  It has multiple sections each with its own quiz. 10 sections, each section as 3 quiz slides.  When the learner completes a section, on the last quiz slide of the section,  a smart shape appears with their score (created using custom variables and advanced actions), along with a start over button.

(Note that this is all option for the learner, it’s a study tool, not a true quiz/test.  It doesn’t report to any LMS.)

I am trying to get that start over button to reset the quiz, so the learner can take that section over if they want, and ultimately, if they go to another section, the quiz is resets too.   There does not seem to be any advance action that can do this. I wrote a simple javascript line to reset $$cpQuizInfoAttempts$$ to 0, thinking that may do something. It didn’t .

I am coming to the conclusion that the only way would be to use the retake button on the ultimate review slide, which prevents my sectional idea, or create slides using traditional shapes/buttons/etc with advanced actions/variables.

Blogging challenge / #100DaysToOffload

Over the years I’ve been set or have set myself a blogging challenge, like #Blideo, #Blimage, and #TwistedPair, which are all part of a wider challenge that was started and shared across Twitter, and my own challenges which ended up being published as #EdTechBook and #EdTechRations or resulted in me gaining my CMALT certificate.

Here’s another challenge that has piqued my interest – #100DaysToOffload. Thanks to Doug Belshaw for showing me the way:

“The rationale behind the whole thing is to challenge people to publish 100 posts on their personal blog in a year. That’s approximately 1 post every 3.5 days. The point of #100DaysToOffload is to be a relaxing and cathartic experience. Not a worrisome affair where you’re thinking of things to write all the time.”

So, this post, #1, introduces the challenge (yes, I’m cheating) but more to follow, some of which may be work-related, some may be film or book or ‘life’ related. Some may be interesting and others may be a rant (or two). Kids will feature, as will kittens/cats, Lego, music, etc.

Of course, this will also take me over the 1,000 blog post mark for my blog if I complete it .. this itself is #968!!

Warum digitale Präsenzlehre eine teure Sackgasse ist

Manchmal glaube ich, dass wir in diesen Wochen und an einigen Stellen schon etwas weiter sind: also Lernprozesse so gestalten, dass sie individuelle Vorlieben und institutionelle Rahmenbedingungen unter einen Hut bringen. Aber an vielen Stellen ist das noch nicht so. Allen voran die Schule. Christoph Schmitt weist darauf hin, dass wir unser gesellschaftliches Leben längst in einer „Kultur der Digitalität“ eingerichtet haben. Nur die Bildung haben wir vergessen.

6 Models for Blended Synchronous and Asynchronous Online Course Delivery

Einleitend heißt es: „This article proposes six models of blended online course delivery, ranging from a highly supported faculty-guided model to an independent self-paced model.“

Dabei setzt die Autorin zwei Schwerpunkte: Mit dem Kriterium „synchronous/ asynchronous“ löst sie ihre Blended Learning-Modelle schon einmal aus einem einfachen Zusammenspiel von Präsenz- und Online-Phasen (was ja gerade in Zeiten, in denen Präsenzlernen mit einigen Hürden verbunden ist, sicher dankbar gelesen wird).

Und indem sie die unterschiedlichen Modelle mit den  Selbstlernkompetenzen der Lernenden verknüpft, gibt sie eine klare Richtung vor: je autonomer bzw. kompetenter die Lernenden auf einem Wissensgebiet sind, um so höher kann der Anteil asynchroner Lernphasen sein.

Schließlich landet sie bei sechs Modellen: (1) flipped classroom; (2) guided lab time; (3) integrated lab time; (4) capstone/independent learning; (5) project-based; (6) self-directed. Aber das ist in meinen Augen nur ein Nebenprodukt (via Christoph Meier).
