Deck

1. Create Deck

A Deck is a canvas where you can create an interactive lesson to engage students. You may add Activities and Paths to encourage students' progression. Explore the  Deck Gallery for decks made by other teachers.

In the  My Dashboard page, click on the + button under Decks to create your first lesson.

Next, give a name to your deck; for example, Training Material. 

1.1 Deck Background

To add graphics to your deck, click on the 'Edit Background' button.

Choose from the default graphics, or your image to be uploaded. Click the 'Save and Exit Background Editor' once you have completed.

1.2 Activities

There are three different Activities which you may use; Slides, Study Set App, and Signpost.

  • Slides is similar to presentation slides where you can import or embed the followings:

    ✓ Image  ✓ Video  ✓ Link  ✓ Site  ✓ PowerPoint  ✓ PDF 
    ✓ Questions with answer choices 
    ✓ Apps - Response and Tools
  • Study Set App serves as an activity for assessment where you may transform your dull assessment tool into fun challenges to complete. Currently, we have seventeen different apps which you may use in your lesson. 
  • Signpost is useful for a short introductory note to the lesson or the activities ahead.

You may insert Activities using the drag-and-drop gesture.

1.3 Paths

Paths are used to connect your Activities. After the student completes an Activity, the neighboring Activity will be activated, enabling the student to progress through the path. Adding divergent paths gives students the opportunity to self-explore on the challenges ahead.  Read more about what  Paths can do to enhance your student's learning.

The  Activity Lock is a powerful feature to increase engagement among students with the lesson. Just by adding a password lock to an Activity, students will be challenged to complete the Activity. To add a lock to your Activity, click on the drop-down icon and select ' Set Activity Lock...'.  Read more here on how you can configure the lock for your Activity.

1.4 Preview Deck

You may preview the current deck in the Test Classroom by clicking on ' Preview Deck'. 

The Test Classroom is a sandbox for you to test both the Teacher's and Student's views; Teacher’s view is on the left, and Student’s view is on the right.
