New Micro – The Expanding Universe

The Expanding Universe

We’re excited to release our first Astronomy micro on The Expanding Universe. It’s part of our Galaxies Macro, from our Astronomy course.

Upload this self-grading, supplemental microlearning package to your LMS or VLE for students to learn anytime, anywhere. Students will learn about the Hubble’s Law and how the universe is expanding, and practice real-life examples of constants of proportionality. You’ll save both time and preparation work with this easy-to-use, beautifully designed, and pedagogically-effective Micro.

This self-contained Micro is only $40 and includes a lesson, interactive glossary flip cards, thought-provoking questions, and a knowledge check quiz. It gives you unlimited options so that you can choose how you want to use it, whether you decide to include it as part of other teaching or let it stand on its own.

All of our Micros are licensed for your unlimited students, so you can use it and reuse it for free year after year!
