Enhance your Knowledge While Learning
The quizzes are made in a special multiple choice setup. If you answer a question wrong, you are informed and told why your answer is wrong, but you are not told which answer is correct. You’re expected to do the necessary research to come up with the correct answer yourself. You also have the ability to interact online with your teacher, teaching assistant (if there is one), and fellow students. You can ask questions and if another student has asked a question to which you know the answer, you may answer it. Interaction in the online classroom is highly encouraged.
