In this demonstration participants will be enticed to explore the open source Moodle platform as a way to affordably and efficiently develop mobile assessment applications. At the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), Moodle has been successfully used as the platform for the development of a Board of Certification mobile assessment practice app. Using Moodle, the app is easy to update as information changes, and it has added value to customers who use the app to practice for certification exams. The app has also brought an additional revenue stream to the organization.

After seeing this demonstration, participants may better be able to:

  • Understand how to approach using the open source Moodle platform as a mobile assessment application database
  • Explain the key steps involved in successful development and deployment of a mobile exam practice app
  • Identify the technical skills needed for successful configuration and deployment of application data
  • Use their knowledge about Moodle mobile application development to create and deploy a mobile assessment practice product
