The workbook summary page summarises all planned activities and reflection points embedded throughout the course materials. Authors can create as many as they wish and they can range from simple text entry boxes to multiple-choice question types. Solid boxes indicate an activity has been attempted; the one with the red line on top is the one just completed.

The tabs summarise all the activities in that Topic. Click on a box on the summary page and you are jumped into the tab where the activity is summarised. In this example the word “Impartiality� has been recorded. Clicking on the Return to course links jumps you back into the course materials in-situ.

DIGITAL WORKBOOK

The work completed in the Digital Workbook can count towards the overall assessment for the unit and towards the generation of a certificate of completion. This can provide a much more detailed view of work done than a simple quiz.


The deliberate use of personal reflections, comment papers and forums is a way to persuade students to interact with the course materials in a personal way, to comment in a structured way, and to eventually move over to a more social environment respectively. Many students prefer not to be social in their learning, and a Digital Workbook based course design can significantly increase levels of student interaction.
