Next workshop "Training to create digital activities": register at and as soon as we reach 5 participants a survey will be launched to find a suitable date.

  • Objectives of the training

    Why do you want to do this?

    • What are the benefits of creating digital activities? Gimmick or crucial element?
    • Understand the importance of feedback (AR, feedbacks) and the nuance between AR-error, AR-hints and AR-detailed correction.
    • Reflect on the nature of the activity: summative or formative? Linear or non-linear? What level(s) of Bloom? How does it fit into my learning sequence?
    • What is my learning scenario? Have I ensured pedagogical alignment? (OPOME: Objectives - Progressivity - Tools - Methods - Evaluations)

    How do I do it?

    • Learn how to create questions (MCQs) under scenari-chain and to export them to moodle/ametice.
    • Learn how to insert questions in a moodle test and how to configure the test for summative or formative assessments.
    • Learn how to insert questions in a "lesson" activity in moodle for remediation purposes.
  • Work to do before coming

    Prerequisites: knowing what a question pool is, knowing how to create a qcm question, knowing how to import/export .xml files, knowing how to save/restore a moodle course with an .mbz extension. If you do not have these prerequisites, you should either self-train via the AMeTICE : Prise en main course, or take the CIPE training course :"AMeTICE - Enriching your classroom course with online activities" (contact :

    • Read the memo "Creating digital activities" (available soon!)
    • Prepare, on the part of the course where you want to do a digital activity (if you don't know: on the part that poses the most problems to your students), at least 3 MCQ type questions.
    • For each question, imagine at least 5 plausible wrong answers (i.e. the wrong answers you are used to seeing from previous classes of students). I advise you to make questions with only one correct answer.
    • For each question, a first short feedback where you give clues so that the student can try to find the right answer by himself. To this clue-feedback you can add specific error-feedback for each (or only some) wrong answer(s) given.
    • For each question, full feedback outlining the detailed correction to the question asked.
    • If appropriate to the question asked, imagine one (two) other question(s) similar to the question asked, which will show whether the correction was useful to the student. (And again a hint AR and a detailed correction AR for this (these) similar question(s)). This is in order to build a remediation activity of the "lesson" type in moodle/ametice.
    • To save time, it would be best if these questions and feedbacks were done in moodle/ametice, or if you are not familiar enough with amtecie, type them in your favorite word processor (word, latex ...), so you only have to copy/paste.
    • Images, videos and audio files can be used in the questions, answers and feedback. For images, preferably use png format (not pdf). For video and audio clips, upload them to amupod (or another site of your choice), these are the links we will need.

    Of course, don't forget to bring your computer!

  • Pedagogical Teams

    If you are all or part of a teaching team, do not wait for the next workshop, contact directly to agree on a specific date for your team.

    Ideally, it should be the "extended" teaching team in the sense of "face-to-face + distance learning" that is concerned, because the digital resources and activities are mainly designed to make students work at home! The design being time-consuming, let's share as much as possible...
