Expanding delivery online provides opportunities to use face to face time in new and potentially more effective ways. If content has been pre-viewed by students, more face to face time becomes available to help students consolidate or integrate their understanding together. When the pressure of knowledge-transfer has been reduced, it becomes possible for academics and students to work collaboratively in learning to analyse, synthesise or evaluate and to adopt more dialogic styles of interaction.
The case studies below demonstrate the innovative ways that some of our current delivery teams have designed online content into their course structures.
Digital Assignment Repository
This project is a collaboration with various schools across the university and the Learning Enhancement Team in Student Support Services. The aim of this content is to present past examples of student assignments and to highlight the merits and sometimes the downfalls to allow students to know what they need to think about when writing assessments for their course.
This project was aimed at creating a digital resource from white board drawings used in medical seminars. Previously this imagery was drawn on a physical white board and then removed at the end of the session. Working with the member of faculty we were able to recreate this as an infinite asset.
MED Prescribing Seminars
This resource was designed to provide a new way for students to follow a programme of work both within and outside of seminars. Prezi was used to produce the learning objects. Firstly because it provided an engaging way to present the information and also made it accessible to academics on the course who were not native to UEA.
Five Finger Pitch
Using VideoScribe this audio/visual resource was used to explain a concept as part of our Introduction to Screenwriting MOOC on FutureLearn. This method is very engaging to learners and received a lot of positive feedback from those that used it as a resource.

I thought the Prezi was good and was easy to use.

I really liked the Prezi and found it very easy to use. I felt it helped to provide a good framework to the session and saved time as there was no need to scribble on flip chart. Students found it easy to follow.
