How Do I Let Learners Create Their Own Bulbs?

Jason Liu -

What is a Learner Made Bulb?

Learner Made Bulbs (LMBs) are a great way to empower learners to become instructors. Learners have access to the full power of the Bulb Designer, including choosing their own videos and embedding all question types to their Bulbs. Instructors can use this feature to:

  • Review projects where learners create their own questions on video already seen.
  • Have learners create their own videos and add interactions to increase engagement.
  • Record a learner's presentation and have them reflect on their performance with comments.

Set the start and end dates for this assignment. The assignment will appear in the class after the start date, and the Bulb link will not work until the start date. The end date is the due date for the assignment, and the assignment will be locked after the end date. If no end date is assigned, the Bulb will always be available to learners.

Select the classes you want to assign the LMB to and click Assign on the top right of the window.
