This article shows how to create a voting activity in your course. Votings enable participants to vote on specific options (for example, dates). The functionality is similar to web services such as Doodle. .

Step-by-step instructions[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Switch on editing[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Switch above the course

In most cases you will need to activate the edit mode in your course. Only then you will have the corresponding buttons to create materials and activities in your course or to edit the settings.

  • Above course content you will find a button "Switch on editing".

After the editing mode is switched on, all editing options are available to you.

Create task

Add activity / material

Select an appropriate topic (default) or week in the week view and click on "Add material or activity". It does not matter if the topic is empty or already contains other activities or materials.

Selection dialogue

In the following selection dialog, select Vote and click on "Add". This creates a vote in the current section and redirects to the settings page.

Edit settings

Next, you define the behavior of the reconciliation. In the settings, you can define the selection options and the behavior, for example. Options marked with a red * are mandatory.

Basic settings

Basic entries
Meaningful name that is shown in the course view.
Description of the vote that can be displayed in the course view.
Show description in course
Determines whether the previously entered description is displayed in the course.
Display mode

Set options

Next, you specify the voting options.

Allow more than one selection
Determines whether a participant can select more than one option.
Limit the number of answers in the voting options

Now you can set the individual options as well as an upper limit, if this setting is activated.
