about SWAD Apr 2016

Con SWAD puedo controlar fácilmente la lista de estudiantes y dejar que ellos se apunten en grupos de prácticas (una pesadilla si se hace pasando listas por las clases presenciales). Puedo tener organizados jerárquicamente todos los materiales de la asignatura, ocultarlos, reemplazarlos, ponerlos en abierto... Puedo ofrecer exámenes test, realizar votaciones online, dejar mensajes urgentes, dejar mensajes más extensos en los foros...

Los estudiantes pueden subir las prácticas (u otras actividades) online, con la comodidad que supone que sea una máquina quien verifique el plazo de entrega (permitiendo poner una fecha de entrega en Domingo a medianoche, por ejemplo).

Los conceptos que maneja SWAD coinciden con los de la enseñanza reglada en mi Universidad (Centros, Titulaciones, Cursos, Asignaturas, grupos...). No he probado pasar lista con código QR pero me consta que funciona.


Using SWAD I can easily control the list of students and let them sign up in practice groups -a nightmare when done by passing lists in classroom sessions. I can hierarchically organize all course materials, hide them, replace them, mark them as open resources... I can offer test exams, make online polls, post urgent messages, post longer messages in the forums (fora?)...

Students can upload practice labs -or any other handed-out activity, with the convenience of being a machine who checks the delivery time -allowing for deadlines on Sunday at midnight, for example.

The concepts handled on SWAD match those of formal education at my University -Centres, Degrees, career years, courses, groups... I have not tried QR code rollcalling, but I've been told it works flawlessly.


Fácil y cómodo.

Swad no es tan bueno

about SWAD and Moodle Apr 2016

En mi facultad unos profesores usan SWAD, otros el TABLON DE DOCENCIA y otros MOODLE. Para empezar el jaleo que supone que los alumnos usemos tres plataformas distintas según la asignatura es horroroso. Además SWAD no es tan bueno, he tenido el gusto de usar PRADO 2 y es el mejor sin lugar a dudas. El problema es que muchos profesores están acomodados y no se actualizan en su docencia.
