What is Quandary?
Quandary is a lightweight, yet powerful, free software package for instructors interested in developing scenario activities based on situations that students would encounter in their future careers. These scenarios are meant to not only provide students with the information necessary for their academic success, but also to increase retention by transforming lectures and readings into interactive learning experiences. Quandary is a user friendly tool with a low learning curve. Most users can begin developing content in a matter of minutes.
These activities can then be presented in a variety of computer-based environments, ranging from face-to-face classrooms with projection systems to fully online courses. This presentation focuses on the capabilities and applications of Quandary within an academic environment. Activities created with Quandary will be demonstrated along with examples of integration into classroom and online courses.
