Try Versal for Interactive Lessons

Taking a look this week at Versal. Versal is an online platform to create lessons or whole courses. What I like about Versal is the unique way it allows for interactivity, ease of building a course, and how it works with other tools you may be using.

Blended Classroom

When creating a blended or online course it is just as important to design the learning environment. Student engagement with online tools is critical. Simply using a computer does not make learning fun.  Placing PDF’s online for students to read is not engaging or a good use of technology.

Online/blended environments need to be interactive and engage the learner. Versal has an attractive design and the interactive features elevate the learner experience.

Create with Gadgets

Versal makes lesson design easy. Simply drag gadgets onto the lesson planning canvas. Insert text, quiz questions, images, videos, interactive diagrams, whiteboard drawings, math expressions and more.
