Academic institutions are privileged with creative faculty that produce innovative ideas on how to enrich the teaching-learning experience for their students. However, many times faculty comes up with an innovation, but is unable to implement it due to the lack of resources to do so. Sometimes these ideas involve the design, development and implementation of software, but usually there are not enough Information Technology personnel or budget to create this software.
This presentation will discuss the evolution of the GeoQuiz from using transparencies, paper and manual grading, to the development and use of an Online application, overcoming the aforementioned challenge about software development. Geoquiz is a custom web application that helps students learn the name, capital, shape and geographic location of countries. The application is integrated into Canvas and creates randomized quizzes for each student and submits the score and student submitted responses into the course gradebook.
