Is there a way to group a series of quests together?

I would like for my students to be able to work at their own pace but I'd also like to limit how much is seen each day. Can I set up modules of quests so that I can have an overall topic for each day? Example....Mon, we study triangles so they go to the triangle set of quests. They, click on the the topic "triangles" and it opens all of my quests for triangles.

  • You might consider using "Categories" which can be made visible or hidden to provide or limit access to a certain type of quests.

    • Perhaps I'm creating my quests incorrectly. Specifically, there are 12 modules/categories that I am required to teach within my course. I was thinking of making those modules the badges that students earn. So they'd get a mod 1 badge, mod 2 badge and so on. Within each module, tnready/common core has listed about 5-9 lessons that students are to master. I was thinking that these lessons would be the quests. However, within each quest the students will have several different mini-activities that they will have to do or choose between in order to complete the lesson. Ex. do an investigation, watch a video, take notes, complete a practice activity, do a partner activity, complete a mastery/exit assignment. Once they do so many of these activities they'll have completed the quest. So far, I have broken these mini activities into quests themselves. Essentially, they'll have quests within quests. Is this something that can be done? Should I instead place these mini-quests into 1 and make it something that will be completed over a series of days? If so, wouldn't that make a submission lengthy rather than having mini-submissions? - Frustrated :(

  • You're on the right track and thinking good thoughts. I think that initially quests should be smaller and quicker to complete (watch a video < five minutes, for example), and then as they move through the, you can start grouping multiple tasks into one quest. The idea is to ramp up the difficulty as they move along, allowing them to build confidence in the early stages that helps feed their motivation later.
