4. Embedding online activities

This section begins by exploring the relationship between online and face-to-face learning spaces and activities. There are activity planning templates to support development of your learning design, reiterating the importance of objective-driven learning in 4.1 and 4.2.

The tools explored in this section take the focus of student activity. For advice on resource creation tools, see Section 3. Creating resources. The guidance in 4.4 will help you choose tools and online platforms for learning with 4.5 providing overviews and case studies of use for the supported tools at York. We have also included unsupported tools that offer different forms of interaction and student-created resources.
