Online learning opens up a range of possibilities, things that would not have been so easy to execute in a physical classroom or training. One of those examples is the select a tag activity.
Think of tags like categories assigned to students. Do you want to show specific content to students based on the position they have in a company? Do you want to run the same course with different cohorts, but want to make sure that students of your summer cohort do not interact with your spring cohort during peer review sessions? Or do you want students who are working on the same thesis topic to connect in a discussion activity? Tags make these things possible for you. In this article you can read a bit more about the different possibilities that tags open up.
🧐 How it works
The select a tag activity lets students choose between one or multiple tags, predefined by the instructor of a course. The selected tag will be added to their user profile in the participants page of the course.
By default students can complete the select a tag activity once they selected on or multiple tags. In the settings tab of the select a tag activity you can decide if students should be able to complete the activity without selecting a tag.
