nakaMoo (Tool to create Moodle quizzes in Excel)

[For instructors who use Moodle] It takes a lot of time and effort to create a lot of Moodle quizzes in the browser. Wouldn’t it be convenient if these quizzes could be quickly edited in Excel, for example? Our tool “nakaMoo” makes this possible. Specifically, you edit the quiz in a spreadsheet like Excel and save it in a file in csv format. The tool converts it into a Moodle xml format. Import the resulting xml file into Moodle and you are done. You can create ‘open-ended/single-choice/multiple-choice/fill-in-the-blank’ questions respectively.

This tool is designed to meet the needs of those who want to quickly create a large number of questions in Excel. It was originally created as a converter to transfer Waseda University’s CourseN@vi quizzes to Moodle. Waseda University instructors who have quizzes in CourseN@vi can save them as csv files and this converter will convert them to Moodle xml files. All quiz questions (free-text/single-choice/multiple-choice/fill-in-the-blank) that can be edited in CourseN@vi can be converted. It also automatically recognises chapter breaks and random question breaks in CourseN@vi and allows easy re-establishment of random questions in Moodle. The first version was released on 2020-04-12 and the latest version on 2020-05-03.

How to use:

  • Prepare a Windows PC. If you do not have Python 3, install it. It is not hard.
  • Log-in to CourseN@vi and save your quiz to a CSV format file. Alternatively, you can make up questions based on the attached sample quiz, e.g. in Excel, and save them in a csv-formatted file.
  • Drag and drop the csv file to nakaMoo.bat, which is in the pack above.
  • An XML file will be generated. The file name is the same as the csv file you entered.
  • Import the resulting XML file into Moodle.

That’s all. There are no difficult procedures or operations. Please see the README in the pack for details.
