Tools

In this section you will find an overview of the different educational tools available to you. We will discuss three video tools (Microsoft Teams, Kaltura Live Room, and Microsoft Teams Live Events), Brightspace, and Kaltura Capture. Before you start experimenting with these tools, it’s wise to first evaluate your teaching program. You’re not stuck with just recording or digitising your lectures, because remote teaching offers a much wider range of possibilities. Curious? Take a look at the section Formats & activities.

Also keep in mind that you can spice up your lectures with interactive tools like FeedbackFruits for (peer)feedback, assignments and discussions or Presenterswall for in-lecture voting, taking a poll and giving feedback. Want to use Presenterswall? You can login here with your ULCN-account. For more information, please read the manual.
