Teaching Ideas for Inclement Weather
Don’t get snowed under! Use Sakai tools to hold class online and deliver class materials. Inclement weather can wreak havoc on a full syllabus. Take advantage of the tools in Sakai to keep your class on track.
Voicethread: Instructors may record audio narration over slide presentations. Find out more here: VT FAQs
Collaborate: Are you looking for a more interactive experience? Instructors and students may meet in a virtual classroom equipped with audio and/or video connections; a virtual whiteboard; polling; and chat.
- Add Blackboard Collaborate to your Sakai site and create a session;
- Learn about virtual office hours (uses Sakai Sign-up tool)
Of course Sakai also provides document delivery; quizzing; and discussion forums among many other tools. Don’t let the weather slow you down, contact ITS Teaching and Learning and get prepared before the first flakes fall.
