Objectives Builder

Designed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Training Manager James Basore, and until very recently hosted by him, his interactive tool to create learning objectives based upon Bloom’s Taxonomy was lauded by the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, the University of Central Florida, and of course, Arizona State University. The Objective Builder helped teaching faculty write actionable and measurable goals, thereby avoiding the long list of “Students will understand…” objectives that typically litter course syllabi. 

Short description of how you've used the tool in this context and how effectively: 
I use this tool to find action verbs that align with the appropriate level of Bloom's Taxonomy.
