Ask Learners to Prove They’re Learning with NEXTCHA

Ask Learners to Prove They’re Learning with NEXTCHA

Drawing off the idea of the CAPTCHA, the NEXTCHA asks learners to answer a question before proceeding through an activity.  I like the idea, but I don’t know that I’d implement it on every slide of a presentation. It seems to be an excellent way to engage learners and to make sure that they comprehend critical elements of the lesson before progressing to more complex concepts.

Major league productivity booster for me.  I’ve got a Windows machine with dual monitors and a Mac.  This allows me to share the mouse, keyboard (and clipboard!!!) across the machines. I spent about 5 minutes setting it up and I’m already wondering how I went so long without it.

Kudos to ProfHacker (again)

The Library of Congress has a WEALTH of material available online, and it’s been my experience that instructors are blissfully unaware of the resources available.

This guide is a great starting point for instructors (and students) who are looking to utilize this vastly under appreciated resource.
