Advice for Staff Supporting Learning and Teaching at a Distance

As lectures, seminars and tutorials move online in response to the COVID 19 outbreak, Information Services (IS) have put together some resources to help staff to teach and support students from a distance. These are linked to from the University’s COVID19 Q&A web page, but the direct links are:

>>> Supporting Learning and Teaching at a Distance: (Canvas module with webinars): 

In the week beginning 16 March IS are running a number of webinars in using online tools for learning and teaching – you can sign up for these via the Canvas module above. 

Just to note when considering options, for teaching through live online events the capacity for simultaneous users in Listen Again (Panopto) could accommodate our largest classes (it can support several thousands) and the recommended limit in Canvas Conferences (Big Blue Button) is 100.
