Teaching online works a little differently from your usual lectures, seminars and classes, and there will be new formats to get used to.

This page will help you explore the new teaching formats you might encounter, from synchronous webinars to asynchronous methods such as discussion boards, and how best to make use of 'blended' learning resources such as screencasts to support the interaction you'll still get with your lecturers.

The IT Service are continually growing their online toolkit of Remote and Home Working information to help you access University systems away from campus.
