Google Apps support active learning

A recent Faculty Focus article, Unleashing the Power of Active Learning, explores options for integrating learning activities into online courses. While third-party tools can create engaging experiences, they can also add a layer of complexity for the learner, who may be asked to navigate to an unfamiliar site, open an account, and remember another password. 

To simplify learning activities, consider easy-to-use digital tools available through the UH Google Apps menu. Interested in whiteboard collaboration activities? Start a Google Jamboard to provide students with a shared space to add text boxes, sticky notes, images, and freehand annotations. Looking for a quiz tool? Enable the quiz elements in Google Forms to ask questions, capture answers, and assign points. See the linked video tutorials below for details.
