11 Digital Task Types
To digitize our 1,000+ lessons and resources, the publishing team is currently using 11 different task types. The task types and corresponding results are designed specifically for English learners and teachers and built by ESL Library’s talented designers and engineers. All digital tasks and features are mobile friendly for you and your students.
The task type name is now available for teachers to see underneath the title of each digital task when a lesson or resource is open on a digital tab.
