Moodle Tutorial: Make multiple-Question Polls with the Feedback Activity. Do you use Moodle? Do you need to make a survey with multiple questions? here is a little tutorial on how to do it. I used Moodle 2.7 here. The latest version as of July 29, 2015 is v2.8, but the Feedback Activity has pretty much stayed the same across different versions, so you should be fine with this tutorial regardless of version. I hope you find it useful!

Announcing New Offering in Series: Designing an Exemplary Course
Open course enrollment will begin September 19th.
Duration: September 26 – October 17
Course Description: Using the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Rubric as a guide, this open course will provide both theoretical concepts and practical tools for instructors to recognize, organize, and build online courses for both blended learners and online learners.
The university, which pioneered massive open online courses, unveils two new homegrown software platforms to host the courses.
You can take any of these course completely for FREE. These course currently do not get you college credits, but it looks like in a not to distant future universities will give students college credit for completing MOOCs successfully. Will this take a big bite out of community colleges and their market segment?
Are MOOCs the future of online learning? Are they good, bad, neither?

Awesome little infographic for beginners put out by Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Think of it as a glossary of terms. Also, bear in mind that the description of Instructional Technology given in this infographic is very simplified, and it only seems to refer to hardware and software. However, the description does not reflect what the profession and the field of study known as instructional technology are, so take that one as a simplified starter-description. Anyway, the rest of the chart should be pretty useful for anyone wanting to get started with speaking the lingo of instructional technology.
