We’re all working on pretty tight timelines at the moment. Sometimes we just need to work with what we’ve got so we can spend the time we do have on other tasks, like transitioning our assessments or interactive sessions online. If you have access to previous class recordings, you may be able to reuse these rather than re-recording new ones.

This guide walks you through some common scenarios and how to edit videos.

Note: Class recordings are hosted and edited in Deakin Video (Mediasite). If you are creating new video content using desktop capture, you should use Deakin Air (Kaltura). In this guide we will refer to, and link to help guides for, both platforms, depending on whether you are editing an existing recording or creating a new video.

Moving practical and laboratory classes online is a particular challenge for many teaching teams, especially where specialised equipment or materials are required. Depending on your context and the learning objectives, you may be able to move some or all of your practical classes online. Our Teaching Online: Practicals scenarios can help you identify whether your practical classes could be delivered online.

Erik Brogt from the University of Canterbury developed a comprehensive guide to online alternatives for laboratory classes, based on common learning outcomes for labs. He has also suggested some useful simulations and online labs. Erik has shared his guide as a Google Doc to assist teaching teams with laboratory classes to move these online.

Synchronous sessions are a great opportunity to provide active learning experiences for students in the online environment. Regardless of the software you select, synchronous sessions can:

  • Create a sense of connection within the cohort;
  • Enable students to apply key concepts to different activities;
  • Allow for ‘real-time’ feedback from students and teachers; and
  • Provide a rich interactive learning experience.

As you transition these sessions online, there are many questions around what software you should use. This guide has been designed to provide you with an overview of the different features of the software available to you so you can make an informed decision based on your context.

We are hoping to gather scenarios of when you would use different software to share with everyone. If you would like to share your experience, please email digital-learning@deakin.edu.au and we will arrange a time to capture your experience.

Transitioning our teaching online means we need to get creative about how we assess our students’ learning. Luckily there are some great alternatives to in-class tests and exams. A key challenge for many people is ensuring academic integrity while moving assessments online.

Following on from CRADLE’s Ensuring academic integrity and assessment security with redesigned online delivery – Digital Assessments guide, we have put together some suggestions on using video assessments.

Video assessment can be a great way of getting students to demonstrate their learning, and it can give you an opportunity to get to know your students better. Find out more about how video assessment can be used as an alternative to some common assessment types in this guide.

For more information and updates please refer to the Transitioning Teaching Online homepage here.
