The e-learning templates are tools to help you make professional looking web pages for your students. They add an extra dimension to the variety of online resources which can be created and made available online.
They allow simple learning activities to be created which can combine a variety of media such as text, images, video and maps with different question types. Rudimentary feedback can be provided to students and general usage of the resources can be tracked.
How am I likely to use them?
The templates are very flexible and can be combined together in different ways to create anything from a single webpage to a short online course consisting of many sections and linked pages.
