STEP 1: Students contribute images to campus Siftr map.
Conversion A: H5P Multiple Hotspot Activity
Once students have finished contributing materials to the Siftr map, the instructor or groups of student-editors could convert the materials into an interactive H5P activity using a Creative Commons-licensed photograph as the background image.
Conversion B: Static Image
Instructors or students could also convert Siftr content into a static image by creating a numbered map for reference and including student contributions below. This would allow future users to view this content in print, EPUB, or PDF formats rather than only on the web.
