If you are using Articulate Studio to develop your interactive course and using an LMS to host the courseware, you may want to do a poll and survey on relevant topics within the course in order to promote the students’ participation and interests. If you would like to embed a poll or a survey within an Articulate presentation, you may firstly think of using Articulate Quizmaker to develop the survey questions.
However, many people are concerned about the reporting function of. With Articulate Quizmaker, you can develop graded quizzes or non-graded surveys. If you set the questions types as survey, you would find it difficult to deal with the reporting process. Firstly, you will not able to track the survey report unless you have an Articulate Online subscription; secondly, you are not able to let the students view the status immediately after they submit their answers; and thirdly, your mail box will be bombed if you set to receive e-mails of individual survey submission and you will find it time-consuming to transfer the data from the e-mails to the spreadsheet.
After several tries, my conclusion is that Articulate Quizmaker 09 is not suitable for developing survey or poll. if you are using an LMS to host your Articulate courseware, why not embed the poll and survey function of the LMS into your presentations? Here is any example:
I’m using Choice” which enable the students to select one item from a list and to view the report showing the ratio of choices of the whole class. There is also a plugin called “Feedback” which has more question types for you to choose from. On the other hand, 09 can embed “ ” into presentations. I’m using this function to embed the and in the presentations. It works well! Here is the procedure:to host the Articulate presentations that I’m developing. In Moodle, there is an activity called “
- You will need to set up the Choice or Feedback first in the course.
- Once the poll or survey is set up, you should have a link of the poll or survey page within your Moodle system.
- Copy the link.
- Switch to your Articulate presentation, click “Web Object”.
- Paste the link on the Web Object dialogue, and click “OK”.
- Publish your Articulate presentation and upload to Moodle as a SCORM package.
The above example is an introduction to a unit of 4 modules. We asked the students to watch a video clip and do a poll to make them think whether a person’s anxiety can be judged by his/her appearance. Once the students make their choice, they will be prompted the poll result. Then the lecturer will continue to give further explanation afterward.
