⌘⌘ How we use SMW with quizzes[edit]

BITPlan teaches

After these courses there is mostly an exam based on the syllabi. The training, syllabus definition and exam execution are done by different indepent organizations. We give our participants access to a SMW wiki with exam related content and especially quiz cards.

⌘⌘ Effects of the Quiz-Wikis[edit]

  • improved success quota - BITPlan participants regularly end up in the yearly toplist
  • more fun for participants - actively working with the wiki is more fun than listening to theory
  • wider coverage of topics - details are linked e.g. Pioneers of SoftwareEngineering
  • personalization of training effort and speed - some people need more preparation than others
