Interactive Learning at Home and Abroad

As students face a growing number of commitments and challenges outside of the classroom, the need to develop learning opportunities outside of the classroom for students who face these challenges is on the rise. While posting lecture notes is one easy and convenient route, students often miss the interactive element of being in a classroom. To meet this growing demand, the first year chemistry program (which regularly has enrolments of over 1000 students per term) has begun developing active online learning modules for students to access through Brightspace remotely. During this session, I will discuss some of our challenges, as well as how we have set out to address them using the Articulate 360 suite of programs, as well as how others at Dalhousie can implement similar strategies using Dalhousie supported technology tools (such as Panopto).
