BALEAP Webinar: Creating digital content

20th November 2019 @ 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Creating digital content:  Xerte and other online tools

In this webinar, colleagues from 4 BALEAP member institutions will talk about their experience of using authoring tools to create digital content for EAP programmes. After each presentation there will be a short Q&A session.  The webinar will last 45-60 minutes and will be recorded, so that you can access it later.

To join, follow this link on the day of the webinar (the webinar starts at 14.00, but you will be able to get into the session from 13.30);

To participate you need to have audio or video, and a microphone, enabled on your device.  The webinar is on the Backboard Collaborate platform – you do not need to install any plug-ins or extensions to participate, but we recommend using Google Chrome as your browser.  Blackboard Collaborate is intuitive, easy to use, but if you haven’t participated in a webinar before, we’d suggest joining 5 to 10 minutes before the start. There will be on-screen guidance, to help you get the most out of your experience, but also a couple of real people who you can talk to (or if you have microphone issues, communicate with through Chat).  If you want to read, or print out, some guidance beforehand, refer to this help guide.

H5P Saucing up Moodle: Developing engaging, trackable and easily reusable content for online, face to face and blended PSE and ISE courses.

Over the last three years Coventry University have developed the first wholly online PSE course in collaboration with FutureLearn by utilising the power and flexibility of H5P. Using H5P helps to ensure our course content is interactive, engaging and measurable as well as giving us the flexibility to reuse content for different cohorts and modes of delivery. This presentation will give an overview of the H5P software and look at some examples of how it can be used in both an online and face to face setting to increase engagement and assist tutors in more accurately assessing student outcomes.
