Interactive Learning

Virtual Field Trips

As outlined in the UF Standards and Markers of Excellence, courses should contain interesting presentations and high-quality materials. Virtual Field Trips allow students to access remote locations that might otherwise be inaccessible in an engaging and informative manner.

Virtual Labs

A virtual laboratory is an interactive environment for creating and conducting simulated experiments. The goal of a virtual lab is to simulate physical laboratory experiments allowing students the opportunity to perform a task or conduct an experiment. Utilizing interactive learning tools such as virtual labs can provide online students with hands-on materials and activities to encourage higher-order thinking skills.


Create interactive assignments in which the students can collaborate on a presentation, timeline, report, or more. VoiceThread is an excellent tool for language practice, asynchronous conversations, presentations or speeches, storytelling, reflection, debate topics, and more.

Google Earth Assignments

Google Earth allows for instructors to create more engaging presentations by adapting their traditional lectures, while also providing students the opportunity for inquiry-based explorations. Whether it’s tracking animal behaviors, investigating weather patterns, or “visiting” locations of ancient civilizations, Google Earth can enhance the learning experience.  For more information on this assignment view the Google Earth Project Instructions.


Students have the ability to collaborate on projects synchronously or asynchronously within Microsoft Office 365. This allows students to edit a PowerPoint presentation online without having to constantly download and upload the document. For more information on this assignment view the Collaboration Instructions.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
