Introduction to Envision YU

Envision YU is a suite of open educational resources encompassing instructional materials, learning activities, worksheets and evaluation tools. The tools have been designed to support learners in developing their confidence and ability to successfully transition through and out of university. The resources focus specifically on four capacities that are important to student success, namely teamwork, reflection, self-regulation, and transfer. Under each capacity, instructors can find a range of resources that support learners across the stages of development from comprehending to developing, applying, and advancing each capacity. By stacking complementary resources in a single course, instructors can include opportunities for scaffolded learning and timely feedback.

Envision YU resources are created using H5P (short for H5ML5 Package), an open-source software that allows users to create customizable and adaptable resources. Instructors can therefore use Envision YU resources as-is or adapt them to better meet their course needs, and this can be done from within the learning management system using available H5P plugins.

Envision YU was generously supported by an Academic Innovation Fund (AIF) grant awarded by the Office of the Associate Vice President of Teaching and Learning, York University.
