Developing first aid skills

What the academics did: Usually a practical element of the course. The academics used the Moodle lesson activity and Moodle quiz to create interactive resources for students. In total 6 activities and 9 resources were created. Students were told the whole section would take around 4 hours (6 hours maximum) to complete and they were given 3 weeks to complete it. They were expected to complete the activities in order. Reports on Moodle were used to identify if students had completed the activities and a Q&A forum was used to get feedback from students on the activities.
