I'm pretty new to all this stuff so hopefully someone can help me.
I understand QTI is a standard and that as with SCORM it should allow quizzes to be moved between platforms. I also understand that XML is a markup language but I'm not really sure how this helps exporting quizzes from one format to another.
I don't know what platform I'll be using for delivering our content (cross fingers Moodle ) so I decided to generate stand alone quizzes that can be put on any VLE or web page. I lose tracking of students taking the quiz but as the quizzes are all formative I didn't think this was a huge teaching loss. The obvious chocie was hot potatoes but I rejected this because we'd have to get a licence. My solution was to develope a flash file that handles multiple choice questions, I recognise that I will probably ditch this development sometime in the future.
- If I have the origonal data what do I need to think about to enable the data to be transferred to another format at some later date?
- How does XML fit in with all of this?
All the best
