Community Learning has been supporting tutors to teach online for some time. Whilst there is no definite ‘best way’ to take your class online we do have a good idea of what a strong class can look like.
Using the tools on this page it is possible to:
Upload all of your materials online using Google Drive or Google Classroom. This lets your students easily access videos, quizzes and worksheets as they work through the course material. Using Classroom, in particular, allows you to easily monitor their progress, give feedback and mark their work.
Hold regular face to face discussions; using Google Meet you can easily arrange a time with your students to meet up. Once there, it’s a great way to keep in touch, sort out problems and feel connected.
Finally, keep connected with colleagues; set up a chatroom in Google Chat with like minded tutors. Using an online tool like this allows for quick and easy discussion. Plus, you get to see what other people are talking about and learn from them. It’s also a great place to ask for help if you’re feeling isolated or just stuck on a problem.
