Quizzes for practicing and final assessment

The students start with an online activity in form of a Moodle quiz. The scope of this quiz covers the topics which were discussed in the previous class. The quiz serves as a repetition and includes both multiple choice and numerical questions. The professor considers two setups for the quiz – an assignment test where students get points for the final grading or as a learning tool where students can repeat a task many times to learn and to practice.

After the quiz: Meet-up in MS Teams

After the quiz, teacher and students meet for an online-session in Microsoft Teams. Here, the professor presents new material using PPT slides and Excel-exercises by using a digital pen to put comments and explanations on the screen. He tries to keep this online presentations relatively short (0.5 – 1 hour).

The presentation-discussion-exercise-cycle

After this, there is a break and then he assigns students to do an exercise for the next 0.5-1h. This can be an assignment or a practice-realted topic. Then a new online session begins, which is started interactively, discussing the exercise, and after this the professsor continues with online presentation. This cycle – presentation + exercise – repeats up to the end of the planned classes. In his last classes with 7 units scheduled, the class managed 3 such cycles. At the end the students get an assignment project with prolonged deadline. For the final exam it is planned to use Moodle quiz as method of examination.
