How do I get started?

Before you continue, you can start by having a look at this general overview: 

On the pages below, you will find more detailed information about the different online teaching activities, tools and how to use them.

1. Pre-recording a lecture

We recommend that you pre-record your lectures if two-way interaction with students is not required during your lecture. It is less complex and risky than trying to deliver a live stream, and allows staff to review their quality and edit if necessary. Because you can add subtitles to your recording, it's also a great solution for students with hearing impairments. Instructions on how to get started with recording your lecture can be found here.

We recommend that you use live streaming if you need to have a two-way interaction with students. With live streamed lectures, distance learners have the opportunity to experience the class just as students on campus do. Instructions on how to get started with your live stream can be found here. Be aware that the larger the group, the more difficult it is to achieve effective interaction with your students.
