Elentra can effectively be used to offer courses in a remote learning and working environment.
- Use a third party tool (e.g. Zoom, Microsoft Teams) to facilitate simultaneous instruction as you're able. Provide necessary links, meeting ids, etc. in the applicable learning events.
- Other schools have also successfully set up streaming arrangements using their existing AV setups. Some ideas include:
- If you have a live stream of a specific room, use a script to append a url to all learning events scheduled for that room.
- If you have the ability to record your rooms but do not have Elentra's lecture capture tools set up, you might provide links to all recordings on a webpage and then append the url for the page to all learning events.
- Have faculty record lectures (video or audio) or provide narrated PowerPoints. These can be shared as resources on existing learning events and viewed at the learner's convenience.
If live video chat isn't an option for your institution, the Elentra Communities module may be useful if you need a place for learners to share documents or have online, text-based discussions. Specifically, you could set up discussion groups in communities for learners to share ideas, ask questions, etc.
- Elentra includes integration with the following proctoring tools:
- A reminder that exams must be posted to a learning event. If you are providing exams for learners to take on an as-needed, self-directed basis, you can create a learning event and post multiple exams to it. Your learners can easily access the exams via the My Exams link and they will see all available exams in one place there.
- Can provide links to these learning objects on events or course pages
