Assessments and Learning Activities are the designed activities that your learners participate in. Some examples of Learning Activities are lectures, discussions, readings, research, and projects. Assessments include things like papers, exams, and quizzes.
These activities are designed on the bundle layer (the layer that organizes the bundles you deliver to learners). Each activity can span 1 or more learning objectives (LOs) and shows up as an arc outside the abbreviated LOs.
You can set the properties of each activity for use in various design strategies and reports, things like modality of the course, type of engagement with the learner, type of grading, and the time estimated for the activity. The use of properties is optional.
Learning Activities will show in green rings around the circle graph, and Assessments will show in gold rings.
To create activities on a course (level-4 object), you need to be an editor or manager on the course. Anyone with access to the course can view activities.
The Activities icon (the head with the gear in it) will become active if you are viewing a course from the bundle layer.
If the Variations feature is turned on, managers can add activity sets to course variations. To find out how to add an activity set, read this article: How do I add activities to my course (level-4 object) variation?
