Transcript

  • 1. Content Creation for Everyone Niall S F Barr [email_address]
  • 2. Background
    • FAB Project
      • Needed a simple way to add quizzes to web pages
      • Quizzes to be fully created by lecturers
      • Delivery by Perl CGI script
      • Authoring tool QuizAuthor was created.
        • Desktop application
        • Written in C++ with MFC
        • Windows (Win32s) and Mackintosh (System 7.5) versions
  • 3. Background 2
    • Later versions added
      • Export of quizzes to JavaScript
      • Export of Quizzes to QTI 1.2.1
    • Used briefly at Salford University with PHP QTI delivery system
    • Never widely released
  • 4. QuizAuthor 1
  • 5. QuizAuthor 1 limitations
    • Clunky interface made adding feedback slow
    • No preview of questions
    • Quizzes not bundled with other material
    • Updating it for new delivery systems was very time consuming and involved editing C++ and recompiling.
  • 6. QTIViewer
    • QTI 1.2.1 Item viewing program
    • Originally a test & demonstration application for Oghma-C item engine.
    • Also displays content package structure allows web content and items to be previewed
    • MFC user interface (Windows only)
    • Generic C++/STL logic (cross platform)
  • 7. QTIViewer
  • 8. Authoring Tool Requirements
    • All the unnecessary detail (XML, file structure, manifests etc.) hidden from the user.
    • Familiar style of interface as far as possible
      • Easy to use
      • As few actions as possible per task
    • Web content and Assessment
    • Interoperability without the user thinking (or knowing) about it.
  • 9. QuizAuthor 2
    • A complete rewrite
    • Shares a lot of code with QTIViewer
    • Templates for item editing and QTI generation
      • Easy to alter
      • Same editing templates can have export templates for different QTI variants (or other text based formats)
    • Web content as well as quizzes
  • 10. QuizAuthor 2
    • Simple to use
      • Single organization
      • Assessments displayed in organization
      • No need for user to know about Content Package Structure
    • Desktop application
      • Familiar concept, Office style; Secure
      • Not tied to a particular VLE
      • But, not integrated with delivery system
  • 11. Initial release (coming soon)
    • Will create content packages containing
      • Web content
      • Assessments (QTI 1.2.1)
      • Itembanks (QTI 1.2.1)
    • Based on Common Cartridge profile
      • Hopefully makes interoperability work...
      • Limited range of assessment items
    • However, probably will still need 'personalities' for now
  • 12. Future Releases
    • More (full?) Common Cartridge support
      • Import Tools Interoperability descriptors
      • Import SCORM SCOs
      • IMS Authentication ?
    • QTI 2.1
      • More item types
  • 13. Future...
    • Logic layer is cross platform C++/STL
    • Potentially a Common Cartridge player
      • Next generation QTIViewer
      • Online delivery
