Migrating from WebCT to Moodle with Regular Expressions

Published April 25, 2010  |  English (Second Language)

Melvin Shantz Teacher, Collège Ahuntsic

Mel Shantz, along with his colleagues at Ahuntsic over the years, has put many hours of preparation time into the creation of web-based quizzes. With the college's decision to change its course management system (CMS) from WebCT to Moodle, those hours of preparation time were in danger of being lost unless an efficient method of migrating the quizzes to the new CMS was found. Short of typing out each of the quiz questions, proofreading them, and re-piloting the quizzes on the new platform, Mel has been attempting to export his quizzes from WebCT and import them into Moodle using the quiz tool's import filter.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
