Small group activities... online?
Institutions of higher education around the world are providing their faculty with resources for online instruction that is active and engaging - read on for ideas, tips, tricks, and recommended practices.
We are approaching the halfway point of the semester - are your students still with you?
Remote teaching can turn into an expensive gig. But do you know who is always on a tight budget, and really knows how to think outside the box? Teachers, that's who!
Laptops, webcams, document cameras... working from home can be effective, but it also takes work and often some specialized equipment. That gets expensive - and even if you don't mind spending the money, the demand is very high so it can be a challenge to get hold of the hardware that you want. Fortunately, there are a lot of clever (and determined!) teachers out there, and luckily for us, they share on social media!
Let's take one example that the CTLA has been fielding questions about - the document camera. No doc cam? No problem!
There were some updates (dare I say, improvements...?) to Webex in the last few days, and your faithful CTLA staff are working hard to create resources that will bring you up to speed on the new features that are available! But for today, I just wanted to help with one existing feature that looks a little different this week - the "mute/unmute" buttons!
