Corona virus – Preparing for distance teaching and learning

Teaching tools for lecturers and students in isolation

Which technology should be used?


the recommended option for a live lesson from a classroom or lecture hall in which filming and recording equipment have been installed. At the same time as the live broadcast, the lecture is recorded and will be uploaded to the course’s site on Moodle automatically. Recording the lecture and the live broadcast will be done automatically and does not require any preparation by the instructor.

Panopto is also the recommended option for a live broadcast from the computer of a lecturer who is in isolation for a course with many students.  In addition, the technology allows for recording of the lesson in advance and uploading the video to for later viewing. Panopto - Short User Guide.


Video Conference technology, and recommended for use when both the instructor and the students are logged in to a computer and when students discussion is an essential part of the lesson. For a class with few students the lecturer can conduct the discussion by themselves. In a lecture course with many students, a discussion moderator will provide assistance. The moderator will collect students’ questions and stream them in order of priority to the lecturer during the time assigned for questions and discussion during the lecture. Zoom - Short User Guide.
