I am looking a Moodle for a possible replacement to our current LMS. One thing we are looking for is a way to ensure active student engagement. I am aware of the Analytics module, but we are looking for a more active way of ensuring student engagement in their classes. Currently we have a custom module that requires students to take a quiz prior to gaining access to each of their enrolled classes. The content on the quiz is basic university based information. The way is currently works is they are a guest in the class. they take the quiz and their role is changed to student. As a guest they do not have access to the course material, it just holds them in the participant list. and adds to class to their class list. I realize that things may nor work the same with Moodle but we are looking for some sort of gate activity that will help us verify active participation. So is anyone doing something similar to this or are you aware of any plug-ins that will help us accomplish this
Just a note. I am new at this institution and worked with Moodle previous to this.
