A Short Background
From my Internet-free childhood, I remember “TV Bridges” – a hit of Soviet television. It was a very popular show and an extraordinary event. They were held almost in real time, with a delay of only a couple of seconds, or even less. Two studios in different parts of the world could communicate visually, the correspondents gave a live broadcast from the scene, and Kashpirovsky treated people with hypnotic suggestion.
It is difficult to make a good knowledge assessment test. I faced this problem back in 2003. We started a distance learning system (DLS) at Vinnytsia National Technical University and began to accumulate a database of tests for various courses. It is impossible to say that all of them were perfect. All teachers, including experienced ones, made mistakes that turned the tests ineffective.
Later, we created our learning platform – Collaborator. This is an LMS for business. And now, when it serves more than fifty companies in Ukraine, I again see similar errors in test questions.
It might seem that making a good test is impossible without solid methodological skills and pedagogical experience. But in fact, common sense, a little time and some simple tricks are enough to receive a good result. I’ll tell you about them.
The trick in creating viral educational content is to break the rules: abandon traditional teaching methods and replace them with new approaches.
Have you ever wondered what kind of impression your company leaves on newcomers on the grounds of its adaptation program? The first impression is the most important one. It is this
impression that defines whether the new employee will become part of your team or leave after a week of probation.
