About virtual learning objects and quizzes

As part of the recent implementation of the modality per meeting for all careers, teachers from the Area of Economic and Administrative Sciences of the Bilwi campus were trained in the use of the URACCAN virtual platform, for the conduct of questionnaires and other educational activities online.

One of the actions to comply with URACCAN's 2020 academic calendar has been the use of the virtual platform, which has been used for more than a decade in this educational institution, so both teaching staff and the student community are constantly trained in the use of this technological tool.

In the 4 venues and the 4 extensions of URACCAN, starting this week, the classes went into the modality by meeting; in this regard, engineer Charles McLean, coordinator of the Institutional Information and Communication Technology System (SITICI-URACCAN), stated that the purpose of providing these trainings is to refresh the knowledge teachers and students have about the proper use of the virtual platform.

In addition, in this context, it is expected to "be able to potentialize the platform in virtual classes(...); at the beginning of the first semester all teachers were trained, however, there are certain tools that have not been provided, so we are in that continuation process," McLean said.

The training addressed virtual learning objects and questionnaires and, in this context, McLean explained that "the H5P tool allows, for example, videos, to put pauses on it and take an understanding test that students get about the video, that is, it allows to enrich the content of the classes".
