How do I provide well-structured learning materials, and how can I organize them digitally so that students can quickly find their way around? Help is provided by the online platform TaskCards, which can be used to sort and clearly display learning content, information, or deadlines.

In a nutshell: What is TaskCards?

Logo © TaskCards

TaskCards is a digital pinboard. With the help of TaskCards, you can structure learning materials and provide them to your students in a clear way. At the same time, TaskCards is also suitable for collaborative work. A TaskCard can consist of text, images, links, and various file attachments. The pinboards are private or can be made publicly available via a link. The TaskCards’ comment function provides the option of rating and giving feedback on content.

Step by Step

You can register for TaskCards here. Find more information on the TaskCards homepage.

After registration, you can (depending on the version) immediately create varying numbers of pinboards.

Select Layout

You can choose between the following layout options: Pinboard, Blackboard, World Map, Timeline, or Blog.

For creative processes such as the creation of mind maps during a brainstorming session, the Blackboard layout format is ideal. With the column view of the layout format Pinboard, you can structure learning content. The layout format Timeline is used to display time sequences. With the World Map layout format, you can place pins at locations around the world and add materials, such as videos or links to them.

Adding elements

On TaskCards you can equip your pinboard with the so-called TaskCards. For these cards, you can choose between the elements of video conference, contact cards, and text fields. Students can reach you via text message using the contact card. A video conference can quickly be started only by clicking on the element. The text field element offers several design options. You can either upload images, videos, GIFs, PDFs, or audio recordings. At the same time, it can also be used for ratings and comments. In addition, text formatting and linking options are available in the text field element.

Managing shares

TaskCards has the advantage of sharing access permissions for a pinboard or just individual cards. This can be used, for example, for group work or the successive release of learning materials. In addition, you can manage read and write permissions individually. Further, pinboard access could be generated via QR codes and links.
