There are four announcements today:
Testimonials – Terima Kasih
This is number one. I don’t know if you have ever looked at our testimonials, but we, the «Indonesian Way» team, feel truely honoured that we have received so many wonderful testimonials. It is hard to believe, but so far «Indonesian Way» has received a rating of 4.9 out of 5 points. This is wonderful! Thank you so much.
Quizzes for Each Module
We have just finished adding a new component to «The Indonesian Way»: you can now take a test after each of the eight modules. Each of the eight quizzes has twenty questions, and after each test you will receive a grade. If you don’t get an A or B, don’t be too frustrated. The tests may be on the difficult side. Let me know what you think of them. If you get an A then you can be very proud of your achievement!
To access the eight quizzes, you have to log in to The Indonesian Way. They are in the navigation bar to the left, always afer the last lesson of each module.
Find the Word
You certainly know the word search puzzles where you have to find hidden words among a square full with letters. Now we are adding them to «The Indonesian Way». Each lesson will soon have one lesson.
Gamification of «The Indonesian Way»
Have you ever heard of gamification? This seems to be one of the most recent trends in educational technologies. I am sure you know this already from online games, but it is relatively new in education.
When you complete certain tasks, you get credits, but you can also loose credits, for instance by not logging in at least once a week. We have just started and don’t yet know exactly where this will lead to, but the purpose is to increase motivation by offering badges for completing challenging tasks. Learners who receive most badges will receive certificates and other incentives. This will take some time to implement, so stay tuned!
