Course description

1) Give students an active task to complete

Make learning more active by giving students a task to complete while engaging with multimedia content. Rather than passively consuming, learners then have an objective and become actively engaged in doing something with the material. Try moving from lower order thinking skills, by testing comprehension with a short multiple choice quiz or survey (using, for example, Poll Everywhere, Google Forms or Study Direct), to higher order thinking skills, by asking students to write a short blog post or summary of the material (using WordPress or Blogger), synthesise material from a range of sources (for example, on a Padlet wall) or create an entirely new resource based on the content (e.g. a presentation, a handout, an audio recording).
