Have you implemented eLearning in your institution?

Have you implemented distance learning at your institution for technical offerings?  If so, any tips you would be willing to share?

At Box Hill Institute, we moved to fully remote delivery in Mid March.

My advice for anyone considering this:

  • Record your lessons in advance.
    • Break them down into short digestible topics. This will avoid the students getting bored by long winded talks.
    • It also avoids any potential tech failure that could occur trying to record the lesson live.
  • Record and demonstrate each lab activity, that way if a student gets stuck, they have a walk-through guide they can follow along with.
  • Do a live interactive class as if it was in the classroom to reinforce the above activities.
  • Use discussion forums to get the students sharing their knowledge and keep lines of communication open.

We have NetLab so I can also do a live supervision of lab activities.
