Anatomy of an Acrobatiq Course
Acrobatiq's default organizational structure is
- Lessons (or pages)
One of the most powerful features of Acrobatiq courseware is the embedded formative assessment and feedback in each lesson. Lessons (or pages) contain course content and are tagged toLearning Objectives.
As students practice what they have learned by engaging with these activities, they produce a rich data stream on the learning process that drives adaptivity and data analytics.
The following outlines the unique content types within Acrobatiq:
- Basic declarative text and media learning content. Includes but not limited to Tables, Glossary Terms, and Citations/References
- Images, Video, and Dynamic Media Elements
- Learn by Doing (formative practice)
Most course content pages have formative activities that provide students with opportunities to practice what they are learning. Learn by Doing activities allow students to practice the concept that they are learning, with hints and feedback to guide them if they struggle.
The following outlines the unique Activities, Assessments, and Assignments types within Acrobatiq. Your course may contain some or all of these types:
