On 3/27/2020. We conducted a requested session devoted to non academic teaching/training/etc. scenarios. We discussed how to distribute materials (while accounting for the kind of devices your participants/trainees have and network limitations; ex: mobile phones), how to think about moving some content to asynchronous formats, how to develop and maintain Social Presence, and ideas on optimizing for connectivity issues. The recording is available here.
On Sunday, 3/22/2020, we had a follow-up session on how to use specific tools for Online Teaching. We focused on Zoom (for video conferencing) and Canvas (Learning Management System; LMS).
On Saturday, 3/21/2020, Devon Price and Udayan Das conducted a free webinar on converting on-ground classes to an online format. This webinar was open to all educators of all disciplines and covered digital pedagogical practices, streamlining processes, and tips for making the most of online learning tools.
Here is a link to the recording of that Webinar.
