This section of the lava lamp course will take you through some of the facts on the lava lamp, it's inventor Brent Blake and the history of the lava lamp.
A lava lamp has showings with a slow, rolling effect of the lava solids as they appear to slowly heat, shift, and position before transforming into the world famous shape mutations, gently rising and falling for several minutes then eventually subsiding and returning to rest at the bottom of the lamp until the next showing.
What is the interval of these showings?
In this course we will give some explanation why we did things in a certain way. This info is added in separate pages.
Please note that we use these content items just for introductions and extra info. In easygenerator you should add the primary learning content directly to the question. The template you will choose for the course will determine how it is displayed (questions only (like in exam), or first the content and than the question on that content (like in the Simple course template.
This means that your structure will be:
Creating e-Learning is not the same as creating a presentation in PowerPoint. So the worst thing you can do is to create a whole bunch of content items and that is it, that doesn't make your content into a course. The goal is not to put in as much info as possible, but as little as possible. When you only add content to questions, you have the guarantee that there is no content that is not connected directly to the learning goal. Making your course shorter and more effective for the learner.
|Single Choice||When you want to check a single fact you will use single choice. Only one option will be correct. But bear in mind that a Single choice question will be as good as your distractors (the wrong options) are.|
|Multiple choice||When you want to check multiple facts at once you will use Multiple choice. Be careful not to add to many answer options, that can be confusion to the learner.|
|Single choice image||It is the same as single choice, but now you will use images instead of text. Ideal if you want the learner to recognize something.|
|Fill in the blanks||This is a really important question type. It has two options. One is that you can add a drop list, the second one is that the user has to type in an answer. The power of the last option is that the answer is not on the screen. The user has to come up with the answer himself. This means that you can use this to test the active knowledge of the user, most other question types will test the passive knowledge.|
|Text matching||When used correctly this question can test a bit more than just knowledge, it can test insight as well.|
|Drag and drop||
If a learner has to be able to name components in an image (elements of a machine, stars in the galaxy), this is the question type to use. Be careful sometimes the image does not give you enough space to place all text on it. In that case edit the image and ad lines or arrows from the outside of the image to the elements the learner has to name, that will give the learner more overview.
|Statement||You can present a list of statements and the learner has to indicate if the are true or not.|
|Hot spot||As an author you can indicate one or more hot spots. The learners has to find these.|
Easygenerator offers you a bunch of different question types. You should use different question types for two reasons:
