The Lesson Activity is a powerful tool for delivering instructional content to students on GauchoSpace. It can be as simple as an ordered series of instructional material or as complex as an interactive lesson with flexible content that adjusts to student participation. The Lesson Activity requires a lot of preparation and prior planning, so it is best to have instructional material ready before creating the lesson in GauchoSpace.
Before you populate the activity with content, you should add the shell to your site. Once it has been added, you can modify settings, add content, and organize the sequencing of materials.
To Add a Lesson Activity to GauchoSpace:
- Log in to GauchoSpace and enter your course site.
- Turn editing on.
- In the upper right corner, toggle the 'Advanced tools' switch to 'ON' to enable Advanced mode.
- In the Week or Block where you want to add your Lesson, click the button Add an Activity or Resource.
- Select the radio button next to Lesson.
- Click Add.
A new page will open, where you can give the lesson a name and description, and then edit the Lesson settings. The default settings are appropriate for most Lessons, so you may wish to create your Lesson and then return to the settings at a different time, should you wish to indicate a prerequisite lesson or grade, for example.
