Including quizzes throughout your online course is an effective way to increase student engagement and help your students retain the information that you teach them. When you include a quiz at the end of each video lesson or section in your course, it forces your students to stop and think about what they learned before they move on to the next lesson.
Knowing that they will be asked to take a quiz (and be graded on their results) after each lesson or section in your course also helps prevent your students from passively skimming through your course. Quizzes gamify the overall learning experience, providing your students with a sense of satisfaction as they learn and retain new concepts.
If you’re already a Thinkific user, then you’ve probably noticed our built-in quiz feature that allows you to create quizzes for your online course. But there is another way to create quizzes for your students, and that is by using Typeform.
In this post, we’re going to show you how to create quizzes for your online course using Typeform, then we’ll show you how to add those quizzes to your course on Thinkific.How to create quizzes for your #onlinecourse using @typeform. #teachonline Click To Tweet
