MS Teams for teaching – some considerations

Samantha Ahern12 October 2021

If you are planning on using MS Teams as part of your students’ teaching and learning experience there are a few things that you should be aware of, and some things that you can do to create a more cohesive experience.

Firstly, MS Teams is not integrated with Lecturecast, Moodle or Portico. This means that there is no automatic mechanism for adding students to a team, nor an ability to create MS Teams meetings from within Moodle or for the recordings to automatically be added to Lecturecast.

However, we can use Office 365 tools to bulk add members (students) to MS Teams teams, and there are some things we can do in Moodle to create a more cohesive experience for our students.

Bulk enrolment to a MS Teams team

If you have the names and email addresses of those you want to add to a team, you can do so via a .csv file and Power Automate. Power Automate is available via Office 365.

Email addresses need to be in the form username@ucl.ac.uk – on my instance this would be cceasah@ucl.ac.uk or the process will fail.

Step-by-step details can be found via the following external blog post: Adding bulk users from a .csv or Excel file to a Microsoft Teams team with Power Automate

You will create a flow that looks like this:

A four stage flow: Manually trigger a flow, List rows present in a table, Apply to each, Apply to each 2

Alternatively, you can make use of the Team link and ask students to add themselves as Team members. For more information see: Create a link or a code for joining a team

Adding a scheduled Teams meeting to Moodle

Invite a channel to a meeting

Teams meetings can only be created in MS Teams. You can create a meeting for your Team, however, anyone outside of the team that joins the meeting will not be able to view the chat. This is not ideal if you plan on having guests. Or, you can create an event and either invite a mailing list, if you have one, or invite yourself.

For more information see: Schedule a meeting in Teams

Scheduled meetings can be added to a Moodle course via the URL resource. This should be added in the corresponding section for that week’s learning and labelled in a meaningful way. See the Connected Learning Baseline for guidance.

This will then enable your students to view the events in the context of the rest of their learning and ensure all activities can be accessed from one place.

Adding a Teams meeting to the Calendar and Upcoming Events block

Unlike Zoom activities, these Teams meetings will not show automatically in the Calendar and Upcoming Events block. If Activity Completion is enabled, we can set an Expect completed on date and time for the URL resource. This will then show in the Upcoming Events block. It can also be viewed in the calendar alongside other activities.

Enable setting of an expected complete date and time, this should correspond to the meeting date and timeURL activity expected completion date and time shown in Upcoming Events block

 

 

 

 

 

 

By adding the activity to the Upcoming events block it increases the visibility of the event to students and helps them plan and manage their time.

Making Teams meetings recordings available to students

The recommended platform for making recordings available to students is Lecturecast(Echo360). As there is no integration between Teams and Echo360, recordings need to be downloaded from MS Stream and then uploaded to your library on the Echo360 platform before sharing to Moodle. It is generally recommended not to share MS Stream links directly with students.

Other considerations

If you intend to share files in Channels or during Teams meetings think carefully about where these files will go and how they will be organised. Files can very easily get lost if they are not well named or stored in a meaningful structure. It should be noted that files cannot be moved between Channels within the Teams interface, this can only be done via Sharepoint. Learn more about working with files in MS Teams.

When using multiple platforms it’s very important to clarify which platforms will be used when, and for what. It is also important to set boundaries. Where possible Moodle should be the main hub for teaching and learning.

Lecturecast Live – UCL’s new live streaming feature

Jill Reese10 September 2021

Lecturecast Live is a new feature within Lecturecast, UCL’s video capturing service, and installed across 180 teaching spaces. It now facilitates live streaming of in-classroom sessions, which remote students can access via their Moodle courses in the same manner as Lecturecast recorded teaching events. This is one of the basic hybrid teaching options introduced for the 21/22 academic year.

The live streaming function should be selected when scheduling modular events for which remote students need synchronous video transmission of a teaching event. UCL is a campus-based institution with the primary mode of teaching and learning designed to be face to face, and thus live streaming is not enabled by default.

Scheduling Lecturecast Live 

Course administrators will first access Lecturecast Scheduler and complete the initial steps to search for a CMIS booked and confirmed event. Once the teaching event is located and its tickbox is selected, users can either select ‘Create Event’ if it has not yet been scheduled for capture or ‘Edit Event’ to modify an already scheduled capture event. Lecturecast Live is an option listed within ‘Additional Capture Info’ (see image).

The edit schedule pop up window is shown with an arrow pointing to the new tickbox to 'Enable live stream'.

The box next to ‘Enable live stream’ must be ticked and the schedule saved. Please see step 3.3 in the Create & Edit an Individual Schedule Lecturecast Scheduler guidance.  

Bulk scheduling with live streaming has also been enabled. Please note that it can only be used when creating new schedules.

Moodle course administrators and tutors will not need to take any additional steps in Moodle to link and enable live streams than they have for other Lecturecast events. 

 

Accessing Lecturecast Live 

Students will not need to take any additional steps in Moodle to access live streams than they have for other Lecturecast recordings. 

Both students and staff will see which sessions have been scheduled for live streaming, or are currently live streaming, by the addition of a ‘LIVE’ icon to the right of the event name within Echo360 (see image). Upcoming live streams are in grey while current live streams are in green. 

List of past, current and future teaching events listed in Echo360 interface. Live streaming scheduled events noted by 'Live' icon next to event title.

The video interface will open once the event is selected. If the live stream is upcoming then students and staff will see a countdown until the live event begins. If the event is currently live streaming then students and staff will need to click on the bottom left option ‘Show Live Stream’* (see image). We recommend reminding students of this step should they encounter difficulties starting the live stream. 

 

Video interface with the option 'show live stream' highlighted in red

*We are providing feedback to Echo360 on student and staff experience in accessing the live streaming function. Please contact lecturecast@ucl.ac.uk with any comments and suggestions. 

 

Benefits 

  • Fully integrated with Moodle so students will access live streaming teaching events in the same way that they currently access Lecturecast recordings. 
  • Live streaming is automatic once scheduled. 
  • Students have the same view as Lecturecast recordings, which include the in-room video feed of the lectern and a feed of the presentation materials shared using the in-room audio-visual system. Audio continues to be captured using in-room mics. 
  • If students have connectivity issues, they can reconnect to the live stream or view the recording via Moodle once the teaching event is completed and the video has been processed and made available. 
  • Teaching staff can access viewing analytics as they would with any Lecturecast recording. 
  • Available via web browser so no additional software required. 

Considerations 

  • Of the basic hybrid options for 2021/22, Lecturecast Live is the least interactive for remote students taking part in synchronous teaching and learning because it is a one-way video stream. 
  • There may be a ten second delay or more for those viewing the live stream.

Future roadmap 

  • The Lecturecast Scheduler tool will continue to be enhanced to further facilitate the scheduling of live streaming.

Section 1: What is basic hybrid teaching?

Like all universities, UCL is making decisions about how teaching will be structured during the first term of 2021/22. It seems likely that whilst many students will be on campus, others will not be able to physically attend due to travel or health restrictions. UCL staff may therefore be teaching in some programmes with a mix of physically present and remote students in the same teaching event. This post aims to guide teachers and departments through how they might make this a satisfactory experience for their students, and manageable for themselves.

You may have heard of the term ‘hybrid teaching’, although consensus on an exact definition is harder to find. Generally it refers to having both a local and a remote audience for the same class, but this can range hugely in sophistication from lavish custom-built classrooms to small additions of new technology into existing spaces. UCL already has a hybrid lecture theatre but of course we teach in hundreds of spaces across campus, so need a broad approach.

At UCL we are aiming to support students who need to be remote for a period of time, with the expectation that they will be able to come to campus in the future. We are calling this approach ‘basic hybrid’. This will not provide a seamless experience for local and remote audiences to learn, interact, work in groups and so on. But it should be sufficient for remote students to keep in touch with classes and remain connected with their teaching.

For each teaching event, we should consider whether online, face-to-face, or basic hybrid offers the best approach. And perhaps engage our students to understand what works best for them; there are certainly some who yearn for face-to-face teaching to resume, but also others for whom learning online has worked very well. There may be teaching events that work well in basic hybrid, others that are best being fully online, and others where teaching separate face-to-face and online groups is the best option.

We are making additions across the teaching estate to support basic hybrid teaching, and providing opportunities for UCL staff to become familiar with what is available and works best for you. There are two main approaches to running live sessions for both local and remote audiences:

  • Use ‘Lecturecast Live’ in Lecturecast-enabled spaces to stream the teaching event as well as record it. Remote students will see and hear the class. You can also use the built in active learning tools for questions, or Mentimeter for live polls and questions.
  • Use Zoom or Teams during the live teaching session to connect to a remote audience as well as your local audience. You can still record the event using Lecturecast where available or use the built in recording features of Zoom or Teams.

Which you choose will be a matter of your own familiarity and preference, but the location of the remote students may also be a factor as we are aware that Zoom has more substantial global infrastructure than the other platforms, especially for participants in China.

There will of course be variations to this, and Digital Education is working closely with Faculty Learning Technology Leads who are the best first point of contact for advice.


Section 2: Lecturecast Live

About 170 lecture theatres and larger classrooms have UCL’s Lecturecast lecture capture system installed. These spaces allow recordings to be scheduled in advance using the Lecturecast Scheduler.

This system is being upgraded to support live streaming (with about 10 second delay) of classes, in addition to recording them.

For teaching from the 4th to 15th October, Lecturecast Live must be manually enabled by the Digital Education team. To do this, send an email to lecturecast@ucl.ac.uk with details of the sessions you wish to be streamed (please include module code, room, date and time). You may like to consider using Zoom as an alternative to Lecturecast Live.

From 19th October, we expect live streaming to be added as a setting in the Lecturecast Scheduler, as a checkbox shown below.

We know that recording classes with Lecturecast is very popular with students, although more suited to lectures than class discussion or interaction. The live streaming option has rarely previously been used at UCL, but in our internal tests we found the remote experience to be more isolating than a Zoom or Teams call and would recommend combining it with some other way for remote students to ask questions or be engaged in discussion.


Section 3: Additions to our teaching spaces

Many of our teaching spaces already include a range of technology, with a standard teaching station at the front of classrooms and lecture theatres. We are adding equipment to these in various ways depending on the size and existing facilities of the spaces:

  • Larger spaces with capacities greater than 30 generally already have Lecturecast installed. Here we are adding equipment to connect the managed PC, or your own laptop, to the existing in-room Lecturecast camera and audio equipment
  • Spaces which have capacities between 10-30 are usually too small to have Lecturecast, In these we are adding a Logitech Brio webcam to the managed PC to act as a camera and microphone for teaching sessions using Zoom or Teams. However Lecturecast remains unavailable in these spaces.
  • For very small spaces, or where other departmental rooms are being used, we are providing departments with webcams and speaker/microphone units so that they can ‘bring your own hybrid’ to wherever teaching is taking place.

We are also adding ‘Lecturecast Live’, so that where Lecturecast is installed, teaching events can be streamed live as well as recorded. This has previously been used with a few departments, but live streaming will now be able to be set up using the Lecturecast Scheduler.

These additions are being scheduled over the summer of 2021 so as to be ready for the start of term. More details on each are given below.


Section 4: Teaching Spaces with Lecturecast

We have about 180 spaces that include Lecturecast, UCL’s lecture capture system. These are being upgraded to allow the existing camera and audio to be used within a Teams or Zoom video call with remote students. We recommend you use the managed PC in the room where possible to provide a stable wired network connection.

For the managed PC in the room, we have produced video guides for using Teams and Zoom.

Video guide to using Teams from the managed PC (this video has captions):

Video guide to using Zoom from the managed PC (this video has captions):

You can also connect your own laptop in the in-room audio and video system using a new labelled blue ‘hybrid teaching’ USB 3 Type A cable that is being provided.

Video guide to connecting your laptop in a Lecturecast-enabled space (this video has captions)

In summary, for most teaching events in Lecturecast-enabled rooms, the outline instructions are:

  • Log in to the managed PC, or connect your own laptop display output e.g. HDMI. We strongly recommend using the manage PC due to its wired internet connection and pre-checked compatibility with the new technical additions
  • If using your own laptop, connect the blue ‘hybrid teaching’ cable to a USB 3 socket on your laptop
  • Start Zoom or Teams, and choose the correct camera, speaker and microphone as per the instructions below
  • Start your video call, and share content such as slides or your desktop as you would do normally
  • Use the volume control on the console to change the volume level in the room

The devices you need to use are:

  • Camera: UVC USB3.0 CAPTURE DEVICE (managed PC) or eEver USB 3.0 Capture (your own laptop)
  • Microphone: UAC USB 3.0 CAPTURE DEVICE
  • Speakers: ExtronScalerD or HDMI

Section 5: Teaching spaces without Lecturecast

We are installing a Logitech Brio webcam in around 180 teaching spaces which do not have Lecturecast. These webcams will be mounted on or near the monitor. This is an excellent quality webcam with good dual microphones and built in echo cancellation. The camera will normally be attached to the top of the monitor.

This webcam allows Zoom/Teams calls to be made from the managed PC in the teaching space for the purposes of bringing in remote students to see and hear the lecturer, and see any content they are sharing within the call. Lecturecast is not available in these spaces, but calls can be recorded using Zoom and will automatically ingest into the host’s Lecturecast personal library, provided that the host is an existing Lecturecast user with an account already created. If they do not have an existing Lecturecast account, the recording will be stored as a Zoom recording and can be linked to or downloaded from Zoom.

We’ve made a video guide on using the webcam from these spaces (this video has captions):

A summary of this process:

  • Log in to the networked PC
  • Start Zoom or Teams, and choose the correct camera, speaker and microphone as per the instructions below
  • Start your video call, and share content such as slides or your desktop as you would do normally
  • Use the volume control on the console to change the volume level in the room

The devices you need to use are:

  • Camera: Logitech Brio (normally this will be the only option)
  • Microphone: Logitech Brio (normally this will be the only option)
  • Speakers: Realtek (normally this will be the only option)

Note that there is no facility to connect your own laptop to the Logitech Brio webcam in these spaces, and we ask that you do not disconnect the camera from the managed PC. If you do need to use your own laptop, we are providing equipment to departments to enabled this, detailed in the next section.


Section 6: Bring your own hybrid

Some teaching spaces will not be receiving additional equipment. This will usually be for one of three reasons:

  • They are very small spaces, typically for 10 students or fewer, and normally used for parallel/break-out/tutorial style sessions rather than larger teaching events.
  • They are departmentally managed spaces where the equipment is not managed by ISD.
  • They are other ‘ad-hoc’ spaces, such as staff offices, in which teaching activities (e.g. supporting research students) might take place, but are not designated as teaching spaces.

For teaching spaces which don’t have existing technology, we are suggesting a ‘bring your own hybrid’ approach to using portable technology to produce a workable experience for local and remote students.

ISD will supply each department with two Jabra Speak 510 units which are combined speakers and microphones which provide good audio in smaller spaces. We will also provide two Logitech Brio webcams. Both of these connect via USB Type Asockets to a desktop or laptop. The Brio ideally would use a USB 3 connection, although a USB 23 connection will work for non-4k video. The Jabra Speak 510 uses USB 2. Together, these would provide an acceptable level of video, audio and content sharing for a remote audience. For a small group, these can facilitate a natural discussion, and we have been using the Jabra units especially for meetings across multiple sites. For larger groups, they can enable to the teacher to be seen and heard by a remote audience, but won’t be sensitive enough to pick up audio across a room

Once connected, the devices you need to use in Zoom or Teams are:

  • Camera: Logitech Brio
  • Microphone: Jabra Speak 510
  • Speakers: Jabra Speak 510

If you have larger groups, there are other Jabra units available; as a rule of thumb, the larger the unit, the larger the audience it can accommodate. You can view the full Jabra Speak range; note that all of the units except the Speak 810 are powered by USB or internal batteries; the Speak 810 requires mains power when in use.

We are also testing the Meeting Owl Pro, a more sophisticated video device that identifies who is speaking, and alters the camera view to focus on them. It also provides an ‘all-room view’ to give context, and includes a built in speaker and microphone. There’s a demo from the manufacturer that shows how it works, although our testing so far has been a little disappointing, with the video rather slow to identify the speaker, and the audio quality not as clear as we had hoped.


Section 7: What’s it like to do basic hybrid teaching, or basic hybrid learning?

First, let’s be clear. Hybrid teaching where a local and remote audience interact is difficult and tiring, especially if you are doing this on your own. Mor et al (2021) notes that:

“However, many of the [institutional] newcomers [to hybrid teaching] appear to be disillusioned, realising that if not implemented properly, synchronous hybrid learning is “the worst of both worlds” – synergising the limitations of both online and onsite teaching; On one hand, the teacher is constrained in utilising collaborative and active learning approaches that utilise the affordances of physical (or virtual) interaction. On the other, the need to be present simultaneously in the classroom and in a virtual environment creates a challenging cognitive load for the teacher.”

We are supporting basic hybrid teaching technologies as part of our ongoing COVID-19 response, not with the expectation that it will form a new pedagogy or delivery mode at UCL. It will have limitations, and not all the teaching methods currently in use at UCL will translate well to this basic hybrid format. We recognise the load this puts on teachers in thinking through how best to support their students, and themselves, when basic hybrid teaching is being used.

Managing simultaneous local and remote audiences

It is never a bad idea at UCL to invoke the thoughts of Jeremy Bentham (or indeed, his brother Samuel), and the Panopticon inspection principle provides an analogy. Michel Foucault described the fate of a prisoner in the panopticon, “he is seen, but he does not see; he is an object of information, never a subject in communication.” It’s similar to how our local and remote audiences might feel during teaching sessions, being able to see the teacher and view the content, but not really able to engage with their peers on the other side of the divide. Of course, teachers are not prison guards, but this separation of audiences may feel antithetical to the inclusive, lively way that they traditionally teach in a room, or even fully online.

An assistant, or co-pilot, can be very helpful for fielding questions from the remote audience, particularly if there is a lively – but not so relevant – chat, where the important questions and comments fly by. By joining in with the remote audience, they can support their questions and discussions, reducing the cognitive load on the primary teacher and act as the bridge between them and the local group.

Structuring classes

Structuring time is important: time for content, time for questions, and time for discussion. Incorporating both audiences into your teaching by explicitly giving time for both audiences to digest and discuss is likely to mean you cover less content in a single session. And the sessions will take slightly longer to set up using the in-room technology, even though that should be just a few minutes. But please respect the UCL hour (classes being 5 past to 5 to the hour, to allow for changeover and setup for the next group). The Centre for Teaching and Learning at The University of Oxford have produced a useful guide for planning hybrid teaching.

Managing discussion

A lively class discussion is a wonderful thing to enjoy. Humans are very good at listening, and can zone-in on who they want to listen to and filter out background noises or distractions, even in a busy, noisy room. Microphones are not as good at dealing with multiple sources of noise, so when multiple people speak at the same time, the result is a cacophony. If you’ve ever watched a TV news programme or political debate where panellists speak over each, you will understand the problem. If you are having a group discussion, it’s important to regulate and orchestrate it so that only one person is speaking at once. A good discussion in basic hybrid is more like the experience of being at a well-chaired committee meeting, than sitting round having a chat.

Sharing content

Many of us have had the experience of sharing our desktop to show slides or do a demo, and then not being able to see the other remote participants. An alternative to sharing the whole screen is just to show one window, which is your application of choice. A little-known fact is that PowerPoint doesn’t have to use your whole screen; it can run a slide show in a single window. To do this, go to Slide Show -> Set up Slide Show -> choose the ‘Presented by an individual (window)’ option. Now the slideshow will be in a single window, and you can position this so that you can see the remote participants, and any hands raised at the same time. Makes things a bit more personable. Alternatively you might share slides in advance via Moodle, and allow remote participants to use them at their own pace.

Using the microphone

Lecture theatres are often not terribly good acoustic environments, with lots of hard surfaces, and noisy fans and ventilation systems. Most rooms have wearable microphones, and these will make a huge difference to the sound quality for the remote audience. It’s good practice to use the microphones when available, as they can be helpful for members of the local audience, but will be particularly useful for remote participants. Please remember to put the microphone back on charge after use. Where there are no wearable microphones but instead fixed microphones about the teacher, you may need to ask for quiet within the room when you are speaking.

Using a visualiser

Many teaching spaces have a built in visualiser, also known as a document camera. We have also issued many portable visualisers to staff who have been teaching remotely from home over the last year.

These can be used in your basic hybrid teaching, by swapping from the camera feed trained on the speaker to the visualiser feed instead. When using the in-room visualiser, this is a little fiddly, but is demonstrated in the video below (this video has captions):

When you are using the in-room visualiser, there is one significant fact to be aware of. You will need to use the control panel to show the visualiser on screen for the local audience. However, when you do this, you will no longer be able to hear the remote audience through the room system, although they of course can still hear you. So you might wish to ensure you have a co-pilot to field questions in the chat, or take regular breaks from using the visualiser to connect again with your remote audience.

Time zones and recording

If you have remote audiences based outside the UK, they may be in a variety of different time zones. Recording, either with Lecturecast or by recording in Zoom/Teams can make a huge difference for students overseas. You might also vary the time of teaching events so that at least some are in more social hours depending on students’ time zones. Even when using Zoom or Teams in space, you can still schedule a Lecturecast recording for those that cannot make the live session to catch up later, in fact having both is a good ‘belt and braces’ approach.

Keep it simple

Over the last 18 months we have changed our teaching practices like never before. This is a further change. At least when starting with basic hybrid teaching, we encourage colleagues to try to keep things as simple as possible and grow from there.


Section 8: Frequently asked questions about basic hybrid teaching

Does wearing a face covering or mask have an impact of audio quality?

Yes, a little, but less than you might think. Here’s a short test video that shows the impact of wearing a cloth face covering and a thicker FFP2/N95 face mask on sound quality.

For a more evidence-based view than my short test, see some of the readings in section 10.

Can I use an iPad as a whiteboard in a Zoom call?

Yes you can, and there are a number of good whiteboard apps available. The standard Apple Notes app is a starting point, but you can also use apps such as Microsoft Whiteboard, Notability and Explain Everything. You can also record video content using many of these apps, but we don’t need this here as we will just be using Zoom on the iPad to share the screen.

The starting point of doing this is to join the Zoom call twice, once from a computer handling the audio and video (e.g. the managed PC in a UCL teaching space) and secondly from the iPad. Once this is done, disconnect the audio from the iPad to avoid unpleasant audio feedback, share the screen, and then use whichever whiteboard app you like.

We’ve made a demo on this, below. This video has captions.

Do I need to record attendance for students ‘attending’ a session remotely?

It is possible to download attendance lists for Zoom and Teams, although this is not possible for Lecturecast Live events. You can find guidance on requirements and processes for recording attendance at the RegisterUCL site.


Section 9: Training, drop-ins, help and support

We are putting together the communications and support package that will help departments learning more about basic hybrid teaching and to allow teachers to get familiar with equipment and format before needing to use it for real.

Three Town Halls in September and early October have been organised to provide an overview of options and arrangements. There are also a number of bookable sessions in which you can try out basic hybrid in person or remotely in advance of use it for teaching.

Reusing Lecturecast Recordings from previous academic years

Rod Digges13 July 2021

worddav8644e2700b3051007a03d5f424c079e1.png

Following course resets it’s important to remove old Lecturecast section and class links unless the recording has been embedded in the course, in which case you do not need to relink. After this has been done staff may want to review existing recordings for potential re-use e.g. short recordings used in flipped teaching, module introductions etc.

The way recordings are reused depends on their ownership and the way in which they’ve been published. The table below illustrates different scenarios which may apply to your course. Please use the relevant method to re-share your recordings onto your new course. Please note: Currently there is no method for the bulk duplication of recordings from one year’s Lecturecast section to the next.

 

Way recording was previously shared Owner Method for re-sharing
From Echo360 library embedded in a Moodle course using the Echo360 plugin tool in Moodle’s text editor Member of staff who uploaded Generally no action needs to be taken to re-use recordings published in this way.  These recordings remain in a course along with other course content even after a course has been reset. These recordings are independent of Lecturecast sections.  Note, that analytics for these recordings will simply accrue as they are not re-set.
Recordings shared from staff Echo360 libraries into a previous year’s Lecturecast section that now need to be published into a new academic year’s section. Member of staff who uploaded In these cases recordings which will still be available in staff’s Echo360 libraries need to be re-shared into the new year’s Lecturecast section. The method is the same as that used to originally share the content and identical to the steps from 4.1 in the guide Reuse recordings from previous academic years
Recordings shared from staff Echo360 libraries into a previous year’s Lecturecast section who’s classes are then individually linked to different areas of a Moodle course. Member of staff who uploaded This is identical to the scenario above but requires the additional steps of recreating Lecturecast activity links to individual classes. A short video on linking to individual classes is available in the guide Create a Link on a Moodle course to a Lecturecast Recording.
Recordings made in Lecturecast equipped teaching spaces and automatically shared into a section. Owned by the section and not available in any Staff Echo360 library. Any staff member who is an instructor in the section in which the content sits will have the capability to create a copy of the recording in question, this copy will be available to them in their Echo360 library from where it may be re-used using any of the methods above. The process is outlined fully in the guide Reuse recordings from previous academic years

Connected Learning – Teaching tools and platforms

Clive Young24 July 2020

Links to the UCL Resource Centres for tools mentioned at the Town Hall today.

Live Teaching

Blackboard Collaborate is UCL’s web conferencing or online classroom platform. It is integrated within Moodle as an activity, providing access to a range of different functions in a live, or synchronous, learning environment. UCL Case StudyUsing Blackboard Collaborate to teach students across the world.

Zoom is coming to UCL and support information will be available then.

Teams, now universally used at UCL for meetings and one-to-one sessions, is not yet recommended for group teaching. There is no Moodle or Portico integration and Digital Education do not have the expertise (yet) support in its use for teaching.​

Virtual Cluster Rooms will provide direct access to cluster room PCs for computer-based classes. They Mirror the physical cluster rooms in virtual groups that will be timetabled in the same way and accessed via UCL Desktop Anywhere. More information and guidance about planning for laboratory and practice-based activities is also being developed.

Live/Asynchonous

Mentimeter (polling) is an online polling, questioning and voting tool that you can use in your classes or presentations, whether they are face-to-face or online, synchronous or asynchronous. UCL has a site-wide licence. UCL Case StudyEngaging students asynchronously with Mentimeter.

Visualisers and graphics tablets can assist online teaching. ISD have a limited stock of visualisers for circulation to lecturers. You can read more about options for writing and showing objectson this digital education blog post.

Asynchronous

Moodle has many tools that can help keep your students engaged and learning in the absence of face-to-face sessions. UCL Case StudyMoodle tools to make your teaching more interactive.

  • Discussion Forums are often considered the mainstay of online learning. Many staff already use the News forum to announce important information. ‘Learning forums’ can be used for asynchronous discussion (i.e. not ‘real time’) and learning activities. They enable both staff and students to post and reply to posts and are usually are set to allow students and staff to choose whether to become or remain subscribed to a forum. We recommend that Q&A forums are set up for students to ask questions about the course work or assessment processes. Make the purpose of every discussion forum clear, including how students are expected to engage with it and how often staff will reply to posts (if at all). If you want to speak to students in ‘real time’, for example for virtual Office Hours, you might want to try Moodle’s instant messaging style tool, Chat.
  • Quiz is the other popular tool for online engagement. A quiz is a useful way to test or evaluate students’ knowledge and to keep them motivated by letting them see areas for improvement. Marking can be automated on some question types (such as multiple choice). Staff can see a detailed breakdown of results, as well as statistics on how easy or discriminating each question is. It can be used for both formative and summative (credit bearing) assessment, such as in class tests or examinations, but the latter is usually done in a ‘live’ classroom, so for online learning summative quizzes are more normal.
  • Hot Question used to create a list of popular questions or topics from a group. Participants may ‘rate’ others’ questions. The more votes, the hotter the question and the higher up the list it will appear.
  • Book displays collections of web pages in a sequential, easy-to-navigate and printable format. They are especially useful when you have a lot of web content but don’t want it to clutter the front page of your course. Pages can contain links, images, embedded YouTube videos, etc and feature a Table of Contents.
  • Lessons can be used to build structured pathways through learning materials and test knowledge as students make progress. Students usually make choices on each page area, sending send them to another specific page in the manner of a decision tree.
  • H5P is a simple-to-use tool now integrated into Moodle to create interactive content such as drag and drop, fill in the blanks, flashcards, image hotspots, slideshows, games and formative quizzes (the results are not stored) directly within Moodle. UCL Case Study: Creating interactive video training guides in Moodle.

Lecturecast Universal Capture Personal (screen recording) is a stand-alone application which can be used to create recordings (captures). Recordings can include slides (or whatever you choose to show on your computer screen), video of the presenter and audio. Recordings can include slides (or whatever you choose to show on your computer screen), video of the presenter and audio. Lecturecast offers more than just video playback, though. With the Lecturecast Engagement tools,  tutors can set up interactive activities, to engage and support students.

ReadingLists@UCL is an online service that gives students easy access to materials on their reading lists, allowing academic staff to create and update their own reading lists.

LinkedIn Learning provides a vast range of video tutorials supporting learning in software, creative and business skills – all free to UCL staff and currently enrolled students.

Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is Learning on Screen’s on demand TV and radio service for education. The academically focused system allows staff and students to record programmes from over 75 free-to-air channels, and search BoB’s extensive archive of over 2.2 million recordings.

Student-led and collaboration

  • Reflect(WordPress blog) is a form of WordPress, the industry-standard blogging and website-building tool. Blogs may be used to help students reflect on their experiences during study, build a portfolio of their work, collaborate on projects and create public-facing materials. UCL Case StudyMedical Science students use UCL Reflect to create scientific blogs for assessment.
  • MyPortfolio is a very flexible tool which can be used as a portfolio, for blogging, CV builder, social networking system, connecting UCL students and staff and creating online communities. MyPortfolio provides you with the tools to set up a personal learning environment and can also be used to support group work.
  • Office365​, is of course ubiquitous at UCL, but the educational possibilities are not always appreciated. LinkedIn Learning includes a useful overview ‘Office 365 for Educators’.

Teaching videos: which platform should I choose?

Eliot Hoving12 June 2020

Decorative.

As you prepare your Moodle course for next term, in addition to vital asynchronous activities, you will likely want to add a few videos of yourself or a screen recording of your lecture. By now you’re probably aware that UCL has a plethora of technologies. This is partly a necessity, as UCL teaching practices vary so no single tool will get the job done for everyone, but sometimes it’s a little unclear which to use.

 

To help you decide, Digital Education with help from the Digital Media team and IT for SLASH team has put together this comparison table of the three centrally supported media platforms: Lecturecast, Mediacentral and Microsoft Stream.

 

The table hopes to clarify some of the common questions; e.g.

  • Does the platform allow students to download recordings?
  • Can I upload a pre-recorded video e.g. a video recorded in PowerPoint?
  • Can I restrict who views the video?
  • Can I see analytics on whose watched the video?
