Abstrakt EN: The contribution introduces the use of a prediction market as a support tool in the educational process and its networking with LMS Moodle. The prediction market FreeMarket has been running at the Faculty of Economics as the part of the financial engineering courses. The quality of the predictions estimates depends on the trade activity of the market participants. That’s why it’s necessary to motivate students to trade on such a market. The paper presents one of the methods to increase the activity of students. The results of the market trades form a supplement to the final students’ evaluation in the relevant courses in the form of credits that are added to the total score of each student. FreeMarket points that students earn on the market are transferred to the credits according to the declared rate. The interconnection between FreeMarket and LMS Moodle is described together with the description of the process that transfers FreeMarket points to LMS Moodle gradebook. These processes update the students’ assignment score automatically and periodically. In the next the interconnection between LMS Moodle and application for exam report generating is explained. Finally the technological solution of networking is described.
