6 recommendations for creating Multiquiz

You requested it and waited, we dreamed of it and it’s finally here…the latest Teach on Mars activity has made its grand entrance into the solution to get the year off to a great start: welcome to Multiquiz!

The first advantage is the very principle of Multiquiz, which completes the range of activities in the Teach on Mars solution: for one single question, there are several possible answers. This activity will enable designers to propose more extensive questions, with a more detailed level of response.

There are 2 other major advantages regarding answer choices:

  • The possibility to integrate developed answers (up to 280 characters)
  • The possibility to integrate images by themselves or combined with text.

Recommendation n°1: use the Multiquiz in a variety of ways

The advantage with this activity is that it adapts to almost all training and learning contexts. Whether you are dealing with a soft skill, sector-specific or product subject, mix things up with Multiquiz!

Our tips:

  • Use a Multiquiz as a discovery activity; given that the activity is not timed, learners will have time to reflect on each question
  • Propose the activity to validate knowledge acquired during the course by identifying the important summary points
  • In a retail environment, strive to effectively and visually identify product ranges and their compositions
  • Use the Multiquiz as an alternative to the Training Game, when you don’t want to propose a “neutral” answer.

Recommendation n°2: have an objective for each question

To ensure the Multiquiz is a real learning experience, each question must satisfy a specific pedagogical objective, at the risk of creating “gadget” questions.

Our tips:

  • For each created question, ask yourself: what do we want learners to remember?
  • Sometimes it’s better to create fewer questions but of a higher quality.

Recommendation n°3: create plausible wrong answers

The aim here is to get learners thinking when confronted with incorrect answers. If answer choices are too obvious, learners won’t need to take time to think and may end up losing interest in the activity.

Let’s not kid ourselves, it isn’t easy coming up with wrong answers, but remember that this is crucial!

Our tips:

  • Identify common errors and gather accurate information
  • Avoid slipping in clues unwittingly when building questions and answers, for example:
    • The right answer always being the longest
    • The words “always”, “only” and “never” in incorrect answer choices can arouse learners’ suspicion.

Recommendation n°4: deliver high-quality images

Creating a sleek and pleasant playing environment helps hold learners’ attention. Use this to your advantage; this activity allows you to showcase attractive images!

Our tips:

  • Use images, while ensuring they respect the image format and correct settings (nozoom, full)
  • Structure the text using formatting elements (bold, italics, underline, etc.)
  • Use a personalized background to decorate the cards.

Recommendation n°5: take care with the introduction and the conclusion

Personalizing instructions and feedback is an effective means of engaging learners in the activity and creating a link to what comes next. You can give context, reassure learners, provide guidance or simply pay them attention. This good practice, applicable to all Teach on Mars gamified activities, is something which is really worth implementing in order to make the course more fluid and to support learners.

Our tips:

  • In the case of failure, add a touch of humor or kindness to turn the mistake into an opportunity to improve: “Oops that’s not quite right, this activity will help you set things straight!”
  • In the case of success, introduce the next topic to make learners want to carry on, like a nail-biting cliffhanger in a series!

Recommendation n°6: respect the rules of creation

Just like for any activity, certain rules of creation must be respected in order to provide a good mobile learning experience. Alas, there are character limits but don’t panic, they are now longer, much to our pleasure!

  • question = 100 characters maximum
  • answer = 280 characters

Our tips:

  • Activate corrections to encourage learners to review their right and wrong answers in a very visual way
  • Take care with the order and title of questions so that the end result is perfectly fluid for learners.

Countdown to 15 April: launch of a mobile learning version MOOC on “Artificial intelligence for managers and their teams” using two case studies at EDF and Malakoff Mederic Humanis!

Countdown to 15 April: launch of a mobile learning version MOOC on “Artificial intelligence for managers and their teams” using two case studies at EDF and Malakoff Mederic Humanis!

The CNAMFUN and Teach on Mars have teamed up to bring you a mobile-first version of case studies from a MOOC on the topic of how AI can benefit managers and their teams.

Cécile Dejoux, university professor at the CNAM, has devoted extensive research to two organisations – EDF and Malakoff Mederic Humanis – that have implemented artificial intelligence projects, and which you can explore through the mobile content offered via the Teach on Mars application.

The app includes:

  • course activities to get to grips with the strategy and objectives of both organisations, and understand their business models, changes in their industries, the methods used and the projects deployed.
  • each case study includes fun activities with appropriation games to offer MOOCers an attractive, engaging and varied experience.

EDF is a firm believer in this approach: “Offering to share our experience via a mobile app is perfectly consistent with our approach to innovation. The case studies include a number of different videos to help users understand our approach and the training courses we devised. The content highlights two iconic projects: a legal chatbot project and a recommendation project for safety engineers.”

Malakoff Mederic Humanis adds: “The mobile learning model is a great way of presenting our projects on detecting optics-related fraud or file automation of secured contracts. It has allowed us to spread understanding of a complex subject in an accessible way for MOOCers who are interested in artificial intelligence.

Head to the CNAM on 15 April at 7 pm for the launch of both MOOCs under the umbrella title “Make AI your ally with new collaborative working methods“. Two panel discussions will help you learn about the mobile and gamified training courses of two major corporations and their approach to successfully deploying artificial intelligence in their organisations!
