4. Acronyms or Alphabet Fill-Ins

Here’s the Acronyms or Alphabet Fill-Ins learning interaction from my eBook, Engaging Interactions For eLearning:

Description: Have the learner come up with descriptive words to complete a phrase (or even the entire alphabet). Provide sample answers after they are finished.

The main idea for this interaction is to get the learner to stretch their brain and try to look for words and concepts related to the theme of the course.

Example: S_________
A_________
F_________
E_________
T_________
Y_________

(or)

A_________
B_________
C_________
D_________
E_________
(and so on)

Level(s) of Interaction: 2
Knowledge Type(s): Factual

Admittedly, this is a bit of a softball interaction, but it is a good way to get the learner to brainstorm and make mental connections as they ponder the material they just learned. This interaction could be built within a course using basic HTML and JavaScript, allowing the learner to input and save (and print?) their keywords. You may also consider using a tool (such as a wiki) that allows learners to see everybody else’s responses, either while they’re working or after they’re finished.
