Tips for implementation & variation
- Online teaching: Students can ask their questions verbally or they can put their questions in the chat or on the built-in whiteboard of the video lecture tool, in a shared document or in Brightspace. Afterwards the students can vote on the three questions they want to discuss or you can create a quiz in which they can select their top 3.
