Creating org unit and org-level activity descriptions

Home » Learning Activity Library » Creating and using activity descriptions Creating org unit and org-level activity descriptions

When you create activity descriptions at the org-level they are available to all child org units. Activity descriptions you create for an org unit are also available for that org unit’s children, but not for the org unit’s parent or the org-level.

Creating a new activity description requires you to choose:

  • The Category by which the Learning Activity Library groups the activity description.
  • The purpose the activity description serves, either as content or as an assessment.
  • Which cognitive skills (from Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Skills) apply.
  • Instructional approaches that are possible (for example, direct, indirect, independent).
