During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Buzz lets you create various activity types using the same tool.

Add an activity

Buzz provides activity types to facilitate quick creation of a variety of activities that support personalized and project-based learning models.

You can create Wikis and Discussion threads to promote collaborative knowledge creation and idea exchange, Journals and Blogs for personal reflection, RSS feeds to support research, as well as more traditional assignments and assessments.

To add activities:

  1. Open the Editor from the Main Menu.
  2. Select the folder you want to add the activity to and click + Add to...
Add an activity
  1. From here you can:
    • Use the tabs along the top to add activities from other courses (your system admin must add activities for tabs to appear).
    • Click the activity type you want to add and provide the information that Buzz prompts you to include for the chosen activity type.
