Quick Guide: Complex Skill-Builders

These skill-builder activities provide additional review of or context about images, systems, maps, and graphics through exploration and interaction.


  • Except for drag and drop (image based) and find the hotspot, the activities presented in this guide are ungraded.


Working with Images and Videos

Before developing any content related to images or videos, please see Active Learning Image Guide and/or Guidelines for Selecting YouTube and Vimeo Videos. Record these resources in the relevant image log and/or video log.

Accessibility Requirement

In consideration of meeting accessibility requirements, any instructional image used in an activity must be accompanied by alternative text (alt text). Alt text is a term used to describe text that is read by a screen reader in place of an image. When a screen reader encounters an image within an activity, it will skip over it unless there is alt text provided to read in its place. This renders the activity incomprehensible.

See Quick Guide: Writing Alt Text for further guidance.
