Support Activities used to be referred to as Floating Activities

While the Instant messaging feature in LAMS allows Learners and Monitors to chat in text form during a LAMS lesson, there may be cases where more sophisticated activities need to be available throughout the lesson.

Sequence Authors may wish to run a synchronous chat over the course of a lesson, or create a list of resources that can be accessed at any time, without needing to 'go backwards' in the sequence in the progress bar.

It also means that Learners can begin an activity (such as an essay or scribe discussion), work through a sequence, then return to the activity to revise their answers. The use of Support activities means that this can be done in a much simpler way than the workaround discussed on the LAMS Community.
