APR 24TH – A Practical Guide to Developing Online Learning Material

In this presentation, the Distance Learning Unit at Leeds Beckett University shares some of the approaches and techniques we use to develop our innovative online learning material.

The session is aimed at educators who are new to online learning or looking to move existing material online. We share best practice on how to arrange teaching material online, with some practical tips and examples from freely available software tools. We discuss different approaches to online delivery, the role of the tutor in the online environment and the needs of their learners.
