Decide what types of learning activities you will incorporate to achieve specific learning goals and objectives. For example, you may decide to create a screencast reviewing a topic that students have found difficult in the past. Although you do not have to start creating the screencast, review the tools that are available to you and try them out. Remember, you do not have to re-create the wheel. There may be a Khan Academy video or TED Talk that will be perfect for your chosen topic. (You can search for either within the rich content editor in ECLearn. Look on your rich content toolbar for the icon for Khan Academy and the icon for "TED Ed" videos.)
In your Sandbox course, create a Page that will act as a placeholder for the screencast. If you are feeling adventurous, create the screencast and add it to your course! Here are instructions on How to Upload Media to a Page.
If you chose to use an open education resource, add them to your course.
Decide what types of interactivity you will have your students participate in. Are there any tools outside of ECLearn that you feel would work better to support your planned interaction? If so, which outside tools do you also plan to incorporate into your course (ie. WordPress, Twitter)?
In your Sandbox course, build out your chosen interactivity activity, feed, etc. (or put in a placeholder if you will need additional time to build).
When you have completed these tasks, click on "Submit Assignment" and enter either the URL to your activity, or a detailed description of the activity you are going to build.
