I was interested in the Mazur method of having students answer short questions on the reading just before class, and then have the instructor review them just before class as well. It would motivate students to read (if graded in some way), and would create an immediate interest/point of dialogue with students. It might also form a bridge between the online and the in campus session if the questions related to materials the students should have read online the session or week before. It seems to make quizzes a real teaching instrument and takes advantage of the online to class transitions, which otherwise might be a bit rough/uncomfortable. The main issue I can see is students complaining they don’t have enough time to do it shortly before class, and the instructor having time to review all of the answers right before class and responding to them. If the results were automatically collated and graphed in some way and thus could be shown to the class, that would be helpful. Can blackboard do that (I assume so)? But how?
