Student-Instructor Interaction

Personal Media

Add personality and anecdotes via photo collages, videos, and podcasts to engage students with the course, one another, and you with tools like Camtasia. Consider asking students to do the same. Students can use Zoom or Kaltura Capture to quickly record and share.

Hybrid Discussion

Go to Zoom local or cloud recordings for information on lecture capture or synchronous sessions. 

Integrate recordings and discussions directly in Canvas with BBCollaborate Ultra.

Use Teams for video conferencing.


Use discussion boards like Canvas or Padlet during web meeting discussions or as a supplement. Give discussion post feedback via an announcement, reply, recorded video, or synchronous online meeting. 

OneNote and Google Drive applications are valuable file-sharing and knowledge-sharing systems. Students can edit documents, slides, graphs, and ideas together in real time while you have the ability to monitor their work.
