E-learning functionalities in ECLAP BPNET
This manual reports basic e-learning functionalities available on the ECLAP BPNET portal
(http://bpnet.eclap.eu). These functionalities are available thanks to the integration of the Moodle
Learning Management System (LMS) in the ECLAP BPNET.
The Moodle integration allows users of the ECLAP social network to publish educational content and to
exploit all the advantages provided by the use of a complete and effective tool for creation and
management of on-line courses in an integrated manner. The main characteristic of Moodle is in the
support of effective pedagogical notions, based on a social constructionist education method, adapted and
interpreted with the aim to bring out the pedagogical potentialities in the use of Internet.
Complete and updated Moodle documentation is available on the following Moodle webpage:

E-learning functionalities for teachers
In Moodle a teacher is a user with an access control level that allow him to prepare and manage the course
material (resources and/or activities), to manage student users enrolled in the course, assess students
progress and performance and to access to different activity reports.
NOTE: If a user is registered as teacher in one course, this not imply that he is teacher in all the other
courses available on the portal. The assignment to a user with the role of teacher has to be performed by
the administrator, as described in the following section.
When a user registered as teacher accesses to a course in the ECLAP portal, at the end of the course topic
list he will see a link that allows him to be readdressed to a web page to edit the resources and activities of
that course.
By clicking the link, a new web page will be opened to access in the Moodle system.

Assignment: it allows teachers to collect work from students, review it and provide feedback
including grades. Students can submit any digital content (files), including, for example, wordprocessed documents, spreadsheets, images, audio and video clips. Alternatively, teachers can ask
students to type directly an online text assignment;
Chat: allows participants to have a real-time synchronous discussion via the web;
ECLAP Best Practice Network: e-learning functionalities User Manual
Choice: the teacher asks a question and specifies a choice of multiple responses. It can be useful as
a quick poll to stimulate thinking about a topic; to allow the class to vote on a direction for the
course; or to gather research consent;
Database: The database activity module allows the teacher and/or students to build, display and
search a bank of record entries about any conceivable topic. The format and structure of these
entries can be almost unlimited, including images, files, URLs, numbers and text amongst other
things;
Feedback: allows you to create and conduct surveys to collect feedback from Students. It is smaller
in scope and therefore easier to use than the Questionnaire module, and unlike the Survey tool
allows you to write your own questions, rather than choose from a list of pre-written survey
instruments;
Forum: an activity where students and teachers can exchange ideas by posting comments;
Glossary: The Glossary activity allows participants to create and maintain a list of definitions, like a
dictionary. The autolinking feature, will highlight any word in the course which is located in the
glossary;
Lesson: The lesson module presents a series of HTML pages to the student, who is usually asked to
make some sort of choice underneath the content area. The choice will send them to a specific
page in the Lesson. In a Lesson page's simplest form, the student can select a continue button at
the bottom of the page, which will send them to the next page in the Lesson;
Quiz: module allows the teacher to design and set quizzes consisting of a large variety of Question
types, including multiple choice, true-false, and short answer questions. These questions are kept
in the Question bank and can be re-used in multiple quizzes. Quizzes can be configured to allow
multiple attempts. Each attempt is automatically marked, and the teacher can choose whether to
give feedback and/or show the correct answers.
SCORM/AICC: a course activity which allows you (the teacher) to upload any SCORM or AICC
package to include in your course. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a
collection of specifications that enable interoperability, accessibility and reusability of web-based
learning content. SCORM content can be delivered to learners via any SCORM-compliant Learning
Management System (LMS) using the same version of SCORM;
Survey: The Survey activity module is a course activity that provides a number of verified survey
instruments, including COLLES (Constructivist On-Line Learning Environment Survey) and ATTLS
(Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey), which have been found useful in assessing and
stimulating learning in online environments. Teachers can use these to gather data from their
students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching;
Wiki: A wiki activity is a collection of collaboratively authored web documents. Basically, a wiki
page is a web page everyone in your class can create together, right in the browser, without
needing to know HTML. A wiki starts with one front page. Each author can add other pages to the
wiki by simply creating a link to a page that doesn't exist yet.

item Questions is available, it allows to define the single questions in many different manner.
ECLAP Best Practice Network: e-learning functionalities User Manual
By selecting Questions a new page will be shown to create and manage the questions. This module allow to
create many different type of questions, like:
Calculated – Calculated questions offer a way to create individual numerical questions by the use of
wildcards that are substituted with individual values when the quiz is taken;
Description – This is not a real question. It simply prints some text (and possibly graphics) without
requiring an answer. This can be used to provide some information to be used by a subsequent
group of questions, for example;
Essay – In response to a question (that may include an image) the respondent writes an answer in
essay format;
Matching - A list of sub-questions is provided, along with a list of answers. The respondent must
"match" the correct answers with each question;
Embedded answers (Cloze) – These very flexible questions consist of a passage of text (in Moodle
format) that has various answers embedded within it, including multiple choice, short answers and
numerical answers;
Multiple Choice – In response to a question (that may include a image) the respondent chooses
from multiple answers. There are two types of multiple choice questions - single answer and
multiple answer;
Short Answer – In response to a question (that may include a image), the respondent types a word
or phrase. There may several possible correct answers, with different grades. Answers may or may
not be sensitive to case;
Numerical – From the student perspective, a numerical question looks just like a short-answer
question. The difference is that numerical answers are allowed to have an accepted error. This
allows a continuous range of answers to be set;
Random Short-Answer Matching - From the student perspective, this looks just like a Matching
question. The difference is that the sub-questions are drawn randomly from Short Answer
questions in the current category;
True/False - In response to a question (that may include a image), the respondent selects from two
options: True or False.
ECLAP Best Practice Network: e-learning functionalities User Manual

5. Specify a value to be used as penalty factor in case of error answer. If the penalty factor is more
than 0, then the student will lose that proportion of the maximum grade upon each successive
attempt. For example, if the default question grade is 10, and the penalty factor is 0.2, then each
successive attempt after the first one will incur a penalty of 0.2 x 10 = 2 points.
6. Write the text for the general feedback. General feedback is some text that gets shown to the
student after they have attempted the question;
ECLAP Best Practice Network: e-learning functionalities User Manual
7. Choose whether students can only select one answer or multiple answers (One or multiple
answers?);
8. Choose whether to shuffle the answer options;

10. Write your first answer in the Choice 1 text field. Inserting HTML into this area also makes it
possible to add an image or a sound file;
11. Select a grade percentage for the answer. This is the percentage of the total points for the question
that selecting this response is worth. You can select negative percentages as well as positive
percentages. So, selecting a correct response in a multiple answer question may give you 50% of
the possible points, while selecting a wrong answer may take away 10%. Note that in a multipleanswer question, the grades must add up to 100%;
12. Add a feedback for each response, if you wish;
