This page has been set up to support staff using tools for Remote Teaching. These tools can be used to deliver planned sessions in the case of restricted attendance and are available in all Blackboard courses. 

We’re aware that delivering content online may be new to you, so we have provided lots of guidance and user guides to help you make the most of the tools available. We have also provided a few example ideas, which you can tailor to use for your own content if you’re not sure where to get started.  

Do remember that as you move to online delivery, you may be navigating a learning curve, but so will your students. Remember to tell them what you have done and how they can join in. Try to direct them to UEA help pages or other sources of help. 

The Learning Technology team are here to support you and you’ll find our contact details below – please do get in touch if you would like any help.  

We have also created a discussion board below where you can share any tips or advice on remote teaching with colleagues – please do join in and support each other.   

Should you find that the Remote Teaching content area is not available on your Blackboard course, you can simply complete this form to request it (please note, this form should be completed by staff only).

Getting Started

It may be that traditional face to face meetings, lectures, labs and seminars get difficult over the next few weeks. There are lots of different ways for everyone to keep in touch and teaching to be delivered remotely, but we appreciate that might seem challenging if you’re much more familiar with teaching in a face-to-face environment. 

There are a number of options you might want to consider, which range from quick and easy to set up (such as discussion boards), to slightly more sophisticated methods which more closely replicate a live lecture or seminar environment. We’ve arranged our guidance by scenario, so why not take a look through the options below and read the help section for the scenario that best suits you.  


Getting Equipped

For some of the suggested scenario solutions, you may need AV equipment, such as a microphone or webcam. 

If you are planning on delivering remotely and working from a laptop, you will likely find that your laptop already has a good microphone, speakers and webcam. 

If you are delivering from an office or classroom that has a PC and you are planning on recording audio or video, then you will need to ensure you have the equipment you need. If required, USB webcams and headsets can also be borrowed from CTEL. Please contact us through any of the routes below to tell us what you need. There are also a number of teaching spaces which have dedicated microphones and/or cameras – to see a complete list, please click here



Scenario 1: I can’t get to campus, I'm fairly confident with technology, and want to deliver my lecture or hold my seminar remotely. 

Scenario 2: none of us can get to campus and I’m terrified of technology, but I still want to replace my lecture. 

Scenario 3: I want to replace tutorials or office hours.

Scenario 4: None of these scenarios work for me - what else can I use?
