However, we must be careful when working with these resources for several reasons, including: When using h5p or padlet, keep in mind that these platforms are subscription based, so fo
LEARNING is everything and everything is learning. Recently, we explored Zoom fatigue and its causes. This week, we'd like to discuss how to avoid it! 1.
