Projects

 Projects are online topic folders which can be created for different classes, groups or individuals and  contain items assigned to the whole class/group or individuals.

Projects keep topic resources in one place, quizzes, albums, topic discussions,topic related homework/assignments etc. (Pupils are able to discuss freely in the class and group discussions, project discussions should be encouraged to stay on task). Unrelated homework/assignments can be set outside of a project using the homework/assignment tool. Teachers can create as many topic folders (Projects) as they like, activated,  deactivated  or archived until ready to use with a class.

Pupils also have access to a number of web links via the Starz Activities area...You could put a reminder/link on a project page to send them to check these out for themselves.
