What is an Active Learning Platform? 

Active Learning Platforms are multimedia websites that allow instructors to create and archive content and activities under one digital roof.  These platforms integrate with our learning management system and facilitate the integration of Open Educational Resources or traditional materials in a digital environment.  These flexible platforms provide opportunities for instructor-created or publisher-created material to be paired with engaging and active learning activities.
