VU Collaborate provides a comprehensive suite of Interactive Tools, including H5P Interactives, Blogs, Wikis, Journals, Podcasts and Padlet.
There are a series of integrated tools available to staff for creating interactive content:
H5P is an open source content creation package that facilitates the easy construction of interactive content such as flashcards, course presentations and interactive video. H5P allows for the sharing of learning objects, so staff can also collaborate on objects and share their achievements.
Campus Pack Blogs is an integrated tool that allows students to contribute blog entries as individuals or groups to a shared blog. Blogs can contain engaging elements such as video, images and links to external web pages.
Campus Pack Wikis allow students to create, edit and comment on basic web pages. Wikis are an excellent tool for supporting group work or for peer reviewing shared texts or media.
Campus Pack Journals allow students to create diary-like entries that are shared only between them and their instructors.
Campus Pack Podcasts allows instructors to create record their own audio content. Students can also contribute recorded episodes to a Podcast.
Padlet is an online tool that allows instructors and students to communicate collaboratively by sharing links, videos, images or document files on an online post-it board.
