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 a system administrator can add new Web educational systems, for reason, we call them an
interactive Learning Module (iLM).
This means that any Web system, in principle, could easily became an iLM and be integrated to
Moodle under iAssign package.
You can see a more detailed explanation of iLM
following this link.
If the iLM offers automatic assessment functionality, iAssign is able to deal with it. The figure 2 ilustrate the iAssign working under Moodle (version 4). The back image is the iAssign page with 3 exercises, one of then uses iVProg (the one under the green square) and the exercise 1.3 uses the iHanoi (the one under the blue square).
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:
