Adding the First Question Page

Immediately after you save your lesson settings, Moodle presents you with the following page:

Adding Interactive Course Material in Moodle 1.9: Part 2

At this point, it is time to create the first question page or import question pages from another system. Let’s take a look at each of your options.

Importing Questions

If you choose to Import questions, you can import questions created by Moodle and other online learning systems. Some of the formats that you can import are:

GIFT and Moodle XML

These are Moodle’s proprietary formats. GIFT is text only, and XML can include graphics and special characters.


This format is for multiple choice questions.

Missing Word

This format is for missing word multiple choice questions.


If you’re converting from Blackboard to Moodle, you can export questions from Blackboard and import them into Moodle.


This format supports multiple choice questions, and short answers questions from WebCT.

Course Test Manager

If you’re converting from Course Test Manager to Moodle, you can export questions from Course Test Manager, and import them into Moodle.

Embedded Answers (Cloze)

This format is a multiple question, multiple-choice question with embedded answers.
