Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the difference between a lecture in Lesson and a lecture in Quiz?
    Both Lesson and Quiz are appropriate for uploading lectures to your course. Putting a lecture into the Quiz activity allows you to insert questions into the lecture to check student viewing/comprehension.
  2. When should I put a lecture in Lesson instead of in Quiz?
    Put a lecture in Lesson instead of in quiz when you want to do "Choose your own Path/Ending" activities and there are no comprehension questions that you care to insert.
  3. Can I use Lesson for video lectures and written content?
    Yes, both the Lesson and Quiz activities are compatible with video or text/image content.
  4. Can Lessons be graded?
    Yes, they appear in the gradebook by default. To make the lesson ungraded, go down to the Grade section under Edit settings and change the Practice Lesson setting to "Yes."
