Repetitions of quiz questions like with Leitner cards?

Hello!
I'm brand new here, I also used the search function dutifully, but I haven't found anything.

I have even installed Moodle locally on a XAMPP installation and tried it out. The abundance that Moddle offers kills me. I wanted to create a "nuuuuuur" lesson that consists of a quiz with about 30 questions .....


So my question:

So far I only know the SuperMemo or SuperMemo UX program, which is very simple compared to Moodle. It is based on creating "learning cards" that contain multiple choice questions, yes-no questions, Q&A questions, and so on.
The program evaluates what was known and then sets the cards to "resubmission", so to speak. As a student, you can also determine how many cards you want to learn per session.
Is there a comparable functionality in Moodle?

Hello,

In my opinion, the best Leitner-compliant learning card system in or for Moodle is in MLE-Moodle (Moodle for mobile phones)contain (in the Moodle / mod => flashcardtrainer folder).
This flashcard trainer can be stored independently of the other MLE activities in Moodle under mod and works (created as an activity) exactly according to the Leitner system, i.e. unfamiliar "cards" are stored here again in the very first pile.

Thank you, Joachim!
I was afraid that there might not be something like that in Moodle. This plug-in also seems overwhelming to me with all its features. I also need to see how it works in a normal browser.

I am particularly happy that it is a plug-in specially optimized for mobile use.
I will now deal with it in peace.


BTW:
I find that the answering options I've found in Moodle so far seem very rigid to me (with strict study schedules and punishment points, etc.) I don't like that.

What I still lack in this context is a possibility to ask Q&A questions (e.g. student has to complete the second half of the sentence), in which, as with SuperMemo, the answer is visible in a small pop-up when moving the mouse over the question.
Then the student can use a button to rate whether he knew the answer, whether it was only partially correct or completely incorrect.

OK, this is no longer the original topic of my thread, but maybe an answer is still possible here?

Best regards
Clement

Good day,

Moodle was developed with a very specific idea: learning takes place in groups with active discussion of the topic and, if necessary, self-directed very successfully (http://docs.moodle.org/de/Philosophie). Thoughts of a socially constructivist learning were the inspiration. This becomes particularly clear in the role model of Moodle and tools such as the workshop module

Drill-and-practice concepts tended to be of secondary importance here.

You are describing a very special concept (sentence completion and self-assessment) that has not yet been implemented in Moodle. Nice idea, maybe someone sets out to develop such a module.

Strict schedules are not created by moodle, but by a teacher who packs his content into schedules. Neither a test nor a task needs to be timed.

There are no punishment points in moodle. In fact, however, there are always teachers who, for example, want negative points in the test if a question was answered incorrectly, in order to also deduct points for questions that were previously correctly answered. But: the function does not exist.


Addendum:
Please be careful with the module. It seems that the module is no longer being maintained. The developer has not been logged in for a long time. Some related pages have not been updated for a long time. Does anyone know more about this? Is anyone doing the customization for Moodle 2?

Hello Mr. Hilgenstock!
Thank you for your reponse. In the meantime I have developed the MLE-Moodle further. I only rate it in terms of the features I want, which I have come to know as positive at SuperMemo UX.
Otherwise, I have no experience with e-learning systems and have not yet dealt with their learning philosophy, especially that of Moodle. The community idea, a social and collective learning like in a virtual school class, is certainly superior to the simple approaches like SuperMemo, which is seen by some as a "stubborn cramming program".

The fact that the developers of MLE may not be so active at the moment could also have something to do with the disputes on the part of Oracle regarding Java-ME (and Google's Android) and we are waiting first whether Oracle will continue to allow the free use of Java-ME want.

So far it seems fascinating to me that I can use Moodle / MLE-Moodle to set up a web platform similar to www.supermemo.net and earn money with it. But the effort for this could possibly be too great for me, I'm afraid.



Regarding MLE-Moodle:
I now found that in MLE-Moodle you can most likely only create Q&A questions in the index cards, but not multiple choice and other variants.
But I urgently need that.

Best regards
Clement

"So far it seems fascinating to me that I can use Moodle / MLE-Moodle to set up a web platform similar to www.supermemo.net and earn money with it."

How much money is being made there at the moment? I am very skeptical about the extent to which one will actually end up in the black with such platforms - if it succeeds, it will take years. For example, the fact that Twitter even calls itself "company" is a strange flowering of the Web2.0 belief ...

If you don't have good and rich content, there are no visitors at all - especially not if there is a paywall.

If visitors come with good and rich content, they have not yet paid for it and often do not see that they will have to do that in the future.

Chicken and egg problem: No visitors - no profit.

The creation of the content and its purchase, however, require enormous resources, "preliminary work" that has to pay off economically if one wants to generate a profit.

Large, commercially successful platforms are therefore limited to being a platform and leaving the content creation to the users - refinancing is done through target group-specific advertising.

In my opinion, however, Moodle, in its design as a closed system, is not capable of doing this at all.

Greeting,

Maik

Hello Maik!
I did not claim that Supermemo.net makes any real money on its platform. I'm interested in my offer. I am currently in training with the aim of becoming an "alternative practitioner for psychotherapy". To pass the exam, you have to know a bunch of stuff by heart. There is already a program based on Supermemo for this purpose:
http://www.heilpraktiker-pruefungstrainer.de/

I don't like the user interface and I would rather add MultipleChoice to the learning cards and add a lot more explanations and "hints".
SuperMemo UX can do that. My subjective impression is that the Polish company is not exactly fit in marketing, otherwise they would be more successful, also with their platform.

The fact is that heaps of books for alternative practitioner training are for sale for expensive money and the above-mentioned course is also being sold off. So the market is there. And because the better is the enemy of the good ...

I see opportunities for my project.

However, I actually wanted to learn myself by entering the learning material and then sell the finished course as a by-product. I'm afraid that everything can get much better with Moodle, but that I will lose my goal and become a Moodle specialist instead of a naturopath.

Best regards
Clement

Hello!
I've seen Qedoc in the meantime. I think that there is no more wish for the design of the flash cards.
I could even set up psychological tests etc. due to the scalable answer option.

I have not yet read whether this will also work on mobile platforms. MLE probably had very good solutions using Java and the WURFL database.


But I don't have 500 euros left and every further quiz also costs a license if I don't leave it to the community.
When I've worked on something, it should also benefit me. If someone lends me a set of tools for free, I don't want to be bound. having to hand over everything created with it for free. For me it just doesn't fit -
Pity!
With the free SuperMemo UX I can create courses and pass them on to others, even for a fee!

Thank you again for the valuable and helpful answers!

Have a nice evening
Clement

Yes but...

Why should software developers work for free if you don't want to work for free yourself but don't want to pay anything for the software?

Why should people like Ralf pass on their knowledge here for free?

It is a very real business model to ask money for the software from those who in turn earn money with it, on the other hand to give the software free to those who in turn pass on the content they have developed for free.

Good afternoon beat!

Could it be that I annoyed you with my last post "regarding free"?

I did not want.

I checked my last post again and found that the statements in the first part in combination with the statement "free SuperMemo UX" can be understood to mean that I want everything for free, but want to earn money with the products myself.

In fact, I just wanted to say that Qedoc's business model does not fit my current situation.
And I didn't criticize the Qedoc business model either, and I think it's fair, too. If I had the money, I would probably even buy Qedoc!

I am often out and about in forums, e.g. on XING, and exchange ideas. I am happy to give away my know-how (free of charge).
Even the exchange here in the forum may only look superficially as if I had only taken information up to now. In fact, I also provided information, such as about the SuperMemo, and thus contributed again.

And of course there are people who just want to take and give nothing. I experience that every day in the social area, where you want to dust off my services for free and camouflage the whole thing under the label "volunteer work".

I wish you a pleasant day
Clement
