    There are plenty of ways to collaborate and share work using platforms like Teams, Yammer and G Suite, and we’ve been using them for a while. But suddenly, we are doing a lot more live online meetings and webinars. Teachers and trainers are looking at delivering in real-time using platforms like Zoom and Adobe Connect.

    Taking part in live online sessions can be challenging to get the right level of participation from everyone. We need our webinars, classes and meetings to be as effective, engaging and enjoyable as possible.

    This session focuses on quick tips and tricks to make your sessions more interactive. It explores the basic principles of live online delivery, drawing on guidance from Jisc's Digital Pedagogy Toolkit the Learning and Performance Institute and Lightbulb Moment.

    Jisc has been using these tools and techniques for some time and with excellent feedback after our sessions. Whether it’s a training workshop, a webinar-style seminar or a meeting with colleagues, we can be sure that our participants have enjoyed the experience!
