Asynchronous learning

Use asynchronous learning activities to provide students with a range of on and offline tasks that they can complete flexibly.

Foundation level strategies

  • Mail worksheets, textbooks etc.
  • Upload to a USB drive- worksheets, videos etc.
  • Email students. Do students know how to log in? Do they know their password?
  • Create email groups
  • Phone calls
  • Mobile phone camera for capturing work samples.

Intermediate level strategies

All of these options are available to teachers along with information and training to support their effective use to support remote learning.

Advanced level strategies

  • Record lessons in the style of Eddie Woo's Wootube - Publish to MS Stream or Youtube.
  • Use an LMS - Moodle, Canvas, Stile, Edmodo or any other.
  • Use Flipgrid to get students to give you video responses.
  • Annotate and enhance videos by adding quizzes to videos using Microsoft Stream.
  • Screencaptures (eg demonstrating maths lessons) using Screencastify or Adobe Presenter.

Using video

If you are recording short video lessons for your class, how can you best get them to your students?

  • Post the video directly to your class LMS – you can upload a video directly to a Google classroom or Microsoft team. This means that only students in your class will be able to watch the video.
  • If you are not using an LMS, you can upload videos to Vimeo and share the link with your students. Some schools restrict student access to Youtube, so using a platform like Vimeo makes it more likely that students will be able to watch your video.

Using technology

Getting started support for these tools can be found at Getting started with technology. Links to further training is on the Digital learning selector.

Technical information can be found at Technology how-to guides. All training undertaken can be logged as teacher identified professional learning.
