  7. And the wi-fi wouldn’t work 😦 Very frustrating for those Tweeps who had set themselves up ready to tweet up a storm…
  8. @anitsirk17 haven’t found anyone who has managed to get #mpos11 wi-fi working yet 😦

  18. Feedback module vs quiz vs survey? Thoughts? #mpos11
    October 26, 2011 9:07:37 PM EDT
  19. @anitsirk17 I prefer quiz, but this use of feedback is an interesting idea. #mpos11
    October 26, 2011 9:08:40 PM EDT
  20. @anitsirk17 Moodle survey tool is crap as it cannot be adjusted. The feedback tool however lets you make your own surveys #mpos11
    October 26, 2011 9:08:57 PM EDT
  21. Nice idea – link feedback module to conditionally released assignment dropbox. An interactive coverage? Great for records #mpos11
