How to: Add a Feedback activity
The Feedback tool allows you to create and conduct surveys to collect feedback. Unlike the Survey tool it allows you to write your own questions, rather than choose from a list of pre-written questions and unlike the Quiz tool, you can create non-graded questions. The Feedback activity could be used for course evaluations outside the National Student Survey.
