The primary focus of this session will be on how to create individual content pieces within Mobius, which can be incorporated into Lessons and Assignments
Audience: Course instructors
Möbius is a robust online authoring and delivery environment specifically designed for the needs of STEM classrooms. The primary focus of this session will be on how to create individual content pieces within the system, which can be incorporated into Lessons and Assignments that are offered to students and learners. This session will focus on Möbius text pages ad questions. Text pages: The basic building blocks of instructional content, text pages in Möbius have the ability to typeset mathematics, embed images, videos, and even third-party applications such as GeoGebra. We will go through the Mobius editor, including some of the Mobius specific features added to the toolbar like emphasized blocks and the align environment, and we will also cover how to take advantage of pre-built themes. Access to the HTML source is also available for power users. Questions: Within the same text editor described previously, users can add a response area for students, turning your text page into a question! Questions can have multiple response areas, which come in a variety of types, including but not limited to multiple choice, numeric, graphical, or formulaic. There also exist an algorithm section, where you can program your question to generate unique questions for each student who attempts this question, whether this is used for self-assessment so that students can re-attempt a question multiple times until mastered, or used in a graded assessment to prevent different students from receiving the same question. This algorithm also allows the use of the MapleNet mathematical engine, greatly expanding the complexity of questions that can be asked and answers that can be checked. Finally, questions can be made adaptive; students can be given follow-up questions based on whether they answered the first part correctly or not.
