The 'board' activity on SOL enables a post-it type, virtual board activity for students. This is most useful as an in-class collaborative activity, where the tutor sets out a number of columns with optional names (just double click the heading) and then students add their contributions to the columns.
Postings can be dragged between columns and can include text, image, url links and YouTube videos.
Posts are anonymous from the students perspective to provide a freedom to comment. However, staff can see the poster's identity if required.
Each post can be voted on by students with the star - for instance ideas, comments or questions can be upvoted in a column.
It can also be used with groups to further limit access.
