The Laboratory of Informatics in Education (LInE), hosted on Institute of Mathematics and Statistics - University of São Paulo (IME-USP) is devoted to study the use of Informatics in Education, theory, how to use data to improve the process, the software development and their use in Education. We advocate the privacy right of the students, their data must be kept by their schools/institutions. Free Education, Private Data (FEPD).
iAssign (interactive Assignments) is a free educational system provided by Laboratory of Informatics in Education (LInE). It is a plugin of Moodle that allow to enrich it with more interactive learning tools, for this reason named interactive Learning Modules (iLM). Bellow we present an image of iAssign, under Moodle 3.6 version, illustrating three situation: the course page with an instance of iAssing activity, a portion of iAssing block of activities, and one of its activity, this one with iGeom as the iLM responsible to increase the learner interactivity with the content (geometry in this case).The iAssign version on Moodle plugins area is not the current one. Bellow you can find the more recent one.
iAssign's goal is to increase interactivity in activities related to specific subjects (such as Geometry, Functions, Programming,...)
in a flexible way.
This means that any Web system, in principle, could easily became an iLM and be integrated to
Moodle under iAssign package.
If the iLM offers automatic assessment functionality, iAssign is able to deal with it.
By security reason, only the administrator has the privilege of integrating new iLM into iAssign. Once integrated, an iLM can be used by anyone with access to iAssign. For instance, everyone with privileges from teachers on are allowed to use the iAssign authoring tools to create new activities to the students.
The main features of iAssign package are:
