Multi-Topic Activities

Multiple Topics allows instructors to cover a wider range of content by having students do the same activity with varying instructions.

  • Each student is assigned one topic to make a creation for. Half the students are assigned Topic A and the other half are assigned Topic B.

  • Students will evaluate peer Creations on a topic different from their own.

  • Feedback works the same as regular activities.

How to Use Multi-Topic

  1. In the Options section, under "Multiple Topics", select "Enabled"

  2. In your instructions, identify which topic you want A or B to reference.

    1. Students will be assigned a topic identified by the letters A and B. Ensure that your activity instructions clearly outline which topic you want each letter to reference.

  3. Save and Schedule the activity.

    1. Once the multi-topic activity is scheduled, you will be able to download a csv. file of the Student Topic Assignment List in the "Activity Details" section.
