Create free quizzes for cellphones/ Facebook/ Moodle

24 05 2008

Here’s today’s awesome m-learning find: a website where anyone can create a multiple choice quiz which is compatible with the vast majority of current mobile phones (it runs as a Java application, which most of today’s cellphones support).

The site is called Mobile Study, and the finished multiple choice quizzes can be downloaded to a mobile phone from a computer, by visiting a URL with a mobile phone browser, via an SMS message (a small allocation of free messages is provided for each account), or even by using a QR Code (which you should be able to do if you’ve been following my thread on 2D Barcodes!).  If you or your students prefer Social Web applications to mobile ones, it’s also worth noting that quizzes can be made for Facebook, and if a walled garden is your course approach of choice, yes, quizzes can even be imported into Moodle.

Given that there are a large number of ACT Innovative E-Learning Projects that have, as a component, various formative assessment needs, this site should prove to be extremely useful!

You can try out some of the sample quizzes here – they can be done online to give you an idea of how the quizzes provide feedback, or you can install the sample quizzes to your mobile phone for the full m-learning experience.

Happy quizzing!

Hi Leonard,
thanks for the write up. (You’re a fellow Aussie.)

If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to tailor our website to make it easier to use in an elearning situation please drop us a line or leave a comment on our blog. It can be quite hard to gauge how teachers and lecturers perceive technology being used in their classrooms.

This is very interesting. I am going to be a teacher and would like to incorporate some of these ideas into my classroom.
