Go to materials link does not go directly to the material. It is necessary to click “Workshops and Conference Presentations” to find it.


This presentation, which dates from 2003, provides sound guidelines for creating learning activities/assignments. There is almost nothing that makes it particularly germane for the online environment.


The title gave me the impression that the presentation would discuss integrating Merlot materials into a learning activity. After viewing it, I have the impression that it was more about using Merlot recommended practices and guidelines in developing effective assignments.
