global outlook learning, quizzes, e-learning


Students today are expected to know at least the basics of what happens in the world around them. Teachers must find ways to provide active learning and to increase student participation. This paper presents the creation and implementation process of low cost and easy to execute global outlook quizzes that are constructed especially for business undergraduate students. It is designed as an in-class group exercise for students to compete with each other. The balanced range of questions covers 5 continents with a focus on business, culture, geography, religion and general knowledge, which are essential matters for business students.
