Welcome to the Remote Teaching page
This page has been set up to help you make the most of the tools which your teaching staff may choose to use for remote teaching, should getting into UEA become difficult iin the coming weeks.
The tools your lecturers choose to use will depend on what they decide is the most appropriate for the content they are delivering. They will communicate with you about what they are doing and how they would like you to interact with any content available to you. For this reason, it’s important you keep an eye on your emails and on the announcements for your Blackboard modules.
Amongst others, the main tools that will be used are Blackboard Collaborate, Echo360 and discussion boards. You can find guidance on how to use each of these tools by clicking the link in the menu.
Getting Started with Blackboard Collaborate
Your lecturer may be planning to replace a lecture, seminar or office hours with a Blackboard Collaborate session. If they are, they will advise you and will tell you either where to find the course room on your Blackboard site or send you a link to follow. If you have not used Blackboard Collaborate before and would like to test your audio, you can do so using your module's Colalborate course room. To access your Collaborate course room:
- click on the Remote Teaching link in your module's menu
- click Live Module Webinars or Streamed Lectures
- your course room will be the session listed at the very top - click to join this session and test your audio
