Project-based activities are exceptionally appropriate for the online environment because they allow learners to apply and transfer the theoretical knowledge covered in the course into an authentic situation.
Ideally, project-based activities should be based on real-world situations that are relevant to the students. Moreover, even though these activities could be assigned to individual students, they are mainly intended for teams of two to four students. Working in teams has the potential to promote motivation and commitment.
The deliverable of the project-based activity can be done in multiple ways: as a video, a pre-recorded narrated presentation, a website, an audio recording, a synchronous presentation, etc.
