Making the Most of Technology in Your Course

Created to assist faculty in preparing for potential or definite course transitions to online during the Fall 2020 term (due to the COVID-19 epidemic).

Asynchronous Delivery

Providing your lectures asynchronously has many benefits:

  • Your students have more flexibility as to when they can watch the lecture.  In addition, any students unable to make a synchronous session are not punished for this.

  • Your students can easily view the lecture multiple times and review certain sections of the lecture.

  • If you decide to schedule synchronous meeting times during the semester you can use these times for group discussion and Q&A instead of lecture time.

If you have decided to offer your lectures asynchronously, there are a few options you have in regards to recording and hosting those lectures.

Self Recorded - IDT Hosted

You can always record your lecture using Zoom and then send your video to IDT to host on Vimeo.  IDT will upload the video recording to Vimeo, and then send you back a direct link to the video as well as an embed code for you to embed in a page on Canvas.  Click here to read a guide on this process.

IDT Recorded - IDT Hosted

You can reserve time with the Instructional Technology team to record your lecture(s) either in the studio or another location, and then have IDT host the lecture recordings on Vimeo. IDT will upload the video recording to Vimeo, and then send you back a direct link to the video as well as an embed code for you to embed in a page on Canvas.  This guide has information on how to use the embed code in Canvas.
