Topics will soon appear in FLO, with eLearning teams having rolled over the content from the last time it was offered. Once your topic has been rolled over and you have access to it, what’s next?
Staff with a FLO editing role have an opportunity to prepare FLO sites for teaching. In the current climate this may include converting more teaching materials to an online format or revising the changes you made last year. You may want to look at:
- Scheduling Collaborate sessions for live teaching sessions (eg tutorials).
- Creating opportunities for students to connect with each other and with teaching staff, for building engagement, orienting to assessments, practicing with the technology and asking questions.
- Consider how you will be providing lecture content (lecture capture in theatres, Recording studios and pods, Kaltura Desktop Recorder, Camtasia) and then make sure you clearly communicate this to students.
- Consider sourcing or creating digital content – the Library can assist with sourcing digital content and your college Learning Designers are available to assist with advice on the creation of digital resources.
- Plan your assessment, considering whether this still needs to be online, and then set up relevant tools in FLO, ensuring due dates are appropriate for the teaching period.
To assist with preparation activities, you may want to refer to the FLO topic rollover checklist or to the Preparing for teaching in FLO site.
