Watch the short video to learn more about FlexEd:
ACTIVITIES: Activities (one per chapter) that leverage online interactives and simulations from providers such as NAAP Lab Tools, PhET, Webb Telescope, Tectonic Explore (Concord Consortium), Black Hole Collision Calculator, Dark Matter Simulator, and more. These activities ask students to apply their learning from the chapter in an interactive experience. Suggested answers are provided for instructors.
PRACTICE ASSESSMENTS: Practice assessments (tied to specific learning objectives) with instructional feedback allow for assessment as a learning tool rather than simply an evaluation tool. These assessments prepare students for high-stakes exams, serve as a self-evaluation tool, and focus learning on areas where students show deficiency. These also allow students to be more self-sufficient and rely less on immediate access to their instructor when they struggle.
VIDEOS: SME-selected and curated videos to meet students where they learn today. Incorporating these videos into the learning platform means that they are more likely to be viewed and more tightly integrated into the content. This also keeps students from searching YouTube on their own.
