There are many options for quizzing students on content on polling them on opinions both inside Blackboard and out; formative and summative. Quizzes are typically used only inside the Blackboard context, to link in with GradeCentre. Blackboard also offers surveys which can be used as polls, however many course coordinators use third party solutions such as GoSoapBox, Opinion Stage, Poll Daddy. Some of these have the option to be embedded inside Blackboard. Finally, for the advanced user it is possible to custom write your own quizzing and polling solution using modern web development technologies (such as AngularJS) for hosting inside Blackboard itself for a completely integrated learning environment. This presentation will demonstrate the various options as being used in blending learning on campus right now, how they impact the student experience and what it means for you (the course coordinator) to set-up and manage.
