Active Learning Tools

"Examples of formative feedback tools used for active learning in my online course are non-graded mastery quizzes that check for understanding prior to the graded activity, student discussion board postings for making connections to real-world industry examples, and pop-up questions inserted into video-recorded lecture/demonstration of solving example problems."
