Article – Information from your teacher through text, sound or film. At this node there is no task for you to hand in.

Task – Here you will receive a task from your teacher. When you answer in this node, only your teacher will see your answers. You can answer using for example text, sound or film.


Logbook – Here you can observe your learning process while you work with the loop. You can describe your work, your reflections and your decisions and you can get feedback from your teacher.

Questions and answers

Questions and answers – Here you answer questions that your teacher wants answered. The questions are numbered and your teacher can give you feedback on every individual answer. 

Group assignment

Group assignment – Here, you and the other members of your group have a shared space to write on. You can gather material to your team work, continue writing on each other’s texts or sum up a group discussion.

Notice board

Notice board – Here, you, and the other students in your class, each get a response field. What separates this node from the others is that here you can see each other’s answers and comment on them. The Notice board is a good way to share things for everyone in the class to see, make tasks for each other or to discuss an important issue.


Quiz – Here you find multiple choice questions. Your teacher decides whether you are allowed to do it once or several times.

Terminology quiz

Terminology quiz – A quiz to check if you have learned the words and terms in the Glossary. You pair the word with its explanation. 


Evaluation – Here you can reflect on your learning in the loop by answering your teacher’s questions about your work. You can also see the learning goals that your teacher has connected to the loop and get feedback from your teacher here.
