Online Teaching How-To Guides and Resources
12 Tips for Managing Online Remote Teaching
From delivering lectures to managing a flipped classroom, online learning allows educators to provide interactive remote teaching. Here are some tips to run your online remote teaching sessions.
How To Design A Flipped Classroom Experience
The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Educators provide students with didactic lectures (word documents, PDFs, journal articles, online learning modules, or pre-recorded videos) to view at home, then devote real-time sessions to case analysis, problem solving, discussion, and Q&A.

How to Conduct Collaborative Learning Using Zoom
A web-based breakout session enables educators to divide their main web-based meeting into sub-groups. Educators can use breakout sessions for running online Team-Based Learning (TBL) activities or multiple small-group discussions simultaneously. For example, during a 60-minute session, the entire class can follow the main lecture in a virtual room and after 20 minutes the class can be split into a number of smaller groups, each assigned to their own breakout room to work on a case or complete a problem-based learning exercise for another 20 minutes. For the final 20 minutes, the time spent in the breakout rooms can end with all students returning as a class to the original virtual lecture room where they can present their small group discussion and receive feedback.
How To Use Zoom Whiteboard and Annonation for Interactive Learning
The Zoom whiteboard will allow participants to annotate on a shared screen. You can also use annotation tools when sharing or viewing a whiteboard. The Zoom whiteboard feature will allow participants to share a whiteboard that the host and other participants (if allowed) can annotate on.
Create an Interactive Whiteboard for More Collaboration
Jamboard is an interactive whiteboard system developed by Google. Jamboard helps you create a collaborative whiteboard space where all participants can interact and annotate.
How To Deliver An Online Small Group Session Using Webex
Online learning tools can help educators and learners stay connected and engaged in synchronous and asynchronous ways. Small group sessions are not just about numbers, but rather teaching in a way where dialogue and collaboration is integral to learning.
