Interactive activities enhance student engagement and learning outcomes. The Media Center team can create a variety of interactive activities and place them in your course. Some activities require extra time and planning so we recommend making requests to discuss your needs early. See our gallery below for examples.
The Media Center can provide several types of interactive formative assessments which can provide a rich visual and interactive experience.
Provide us your list of questions and correct/incorrect feedback and we will turn it into a small self-check activity that can be embedded in any WebCampus page. We can also add self-checks to the middle of YouTube videos so you can check for understanding of key points along the way.
Our media team programmers, video specialists, and artists can collaborate to create virtual 360° virtual environments using photos, video, or 3D imagery. Students are able to step into these virtual environments to explore. Additional interactive elements such as hotspots containing information can be added to enhance the learning experience.
Interactive timelines are a creative and elegant way to share temporal information in an engaging visual and textual way with students. Both videos and images can be incorporated into these timelines and embedded in your course pages.
This Privilege Walk activity is an online version of the popular social experiment. It has been designed to provide college students with an opportunity to understand the intricacies of privilege, as well as to encourage them to reflect on the different areas in their lives where they have privilege as well as the areas where they don't.
The Branching activity presents scenarios that challenge the learner to make decisions. Each decision has unique consequences, which means the scenario can unfold in unpredictable ways. The content can include video, images, and/or text.
We’ve all used physical flashcards as a convenient and portable way to test our knowledge, especially leading up to an exam. The media team is able to help develop virtual flashcard decks for your students. These cards can be text-based, visually based, or both as shown in the example above.
