Workplace Essential Skills - Internet Activity

FOR LEARNERS
Workplace Essential Skills video activities are divided into four parts - About, Key Ideas, Activity, and Follow Up. You can see which part you are in, by looking at the buttons directly beneath the activity's title. The dark button indicates your place in the activity.

The "Key Ideas" section contains a list of definitions or ideas to consider. Notice the list of underlined terms (or hyperlinks) towards the top of the page. These words link to different places on the same page; these words are called anchors, and they will help you navigate.

The "Activity" section is always divided into tasks. You will also find two text boxes. In order to complete the activity, you must enter information into these boxes.

Read the text on the page. When you are ready to enter information into a text box, position your cursor inside the box, click and begin typing. Be sure to click on the "Save to Portfolio" button when you have finished each entry. If you do not hit this button after you complete the entries, your work will not be saved.

When you are ready to move on, click on the "Follow Up" button at the top of the page.

The "Follow Up" section presents additional questions or ideas on topics covered in the Internet activity. In this section, you are asked to complete exercises that reinforce important points in the activity.

Read the instructions presented on the page. You may be asked to reflect on or add to your portfolio entries (completed in the "Activity" step). If this is the case, you can click on the "Activity" button to return to the previous step. If you would like to add more text to your original entry, simply click in the second text box and begin typing. Be sure to save your work by clicking on the "Save to Portfolio" button.

When you are finished with your "Follow Up" assignment, you can click on the "Return to Unit's Main Page" button at the bottom of the page.

When you are ready to enter information into a text box, position your cursor over the box, click and begin typing. Be sure to click on the "Save to Portfolio" button when you have finished each entry. If you do not hit this button after you complete the entries, your work will not be saved.
