I've been approached by a couple of Tutors about this.
They've been asked to prove how many hours students spend on independent activities.
eg: A Tutor has set the task of asking students to read a current news article & develop a tweet (as close to the limit as possible) expressing their views on that particular article.
The Tutor estimates it should take a student about 1/2 hr for this task to be completed to a decent standard.
Is there a way we could package this activity into a resource that can actually be timed in Moodle? They want to produce a mean average for auditing after completion of task.
Failing that, does anyone know of a piece of software that might be able to package up an activity into something that will track the time it takes for a student to complete a task?
I'm hoping to avoid anything flash-based as ideally it needs to be something quite easy to package for teaching staff.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
