Virtual classroom (Zoom)

Zoom is a virtual classroom system which allows participants to communicate, watch presentations, interact with learning resources and work in groups. It can also be used to host meetings with anyone (both UQ and non-UQ members) by sending the attendees a link to the virtual meeting.

Zoom lessons and meetings can be recorded and uploaded to the Learn.UQ Course Site.

Desktop recording (Kaltura)

Kaltura Capture is a desktop recording software that allows staff to record short videos as an alternative to live lectures. These recordings can be uploaded to your Learn.UQ (Blackboard) course so they can be accessed by students at any time. A desktop recording can capture your computer’s screen, webcam and audio.

Video assignments

Video assignments can be effective learning activities that substitute for in-class presentations. They help ensure that the student submitting the assignment actually completes the task themselves, particularly if the student can be seen and heard. Although they can be great learning tools, creating and editing videos can be new and time-consuming to many students.

Ensure remote access to UQ tools (VPN, Blackboard, Zoom, etc.)

To ensure remote access to UQ tools please create your own checklist. Below is a list of questions you might ask yourself, and related resources to support this transition:

  1. Can I remotely access the UQ systems and tools needed? Do I need assistance to set up any of these channels? How will I be contactable by managers, colleagues and students?
  2. What technical skills do I have? What skills do I need? What skills do my tutors have?
  3. What digital skills do my students have? What skills will my students need if I decide to use Zoom or other technologies to facilitate teaching? Will they need upskilling?
