Online learning has played a key role in higher education for some time now, but it is even more central to your studies, alongside face to face teaching.
This blended approach will take a variety of forms and this may be very different from how you have been previously been taught. The use of different digital tools and platforms, including some like Microsoft Teams that are commonly used in a professional environment, will provide you with skills and experience that will help you in your future career.
If any teaching event (in Panopto, Collaborate or MS Teams) is recorded, you do not need to share your camera or audio if you choose not to. Participation is voluntary, but we recommend engaging with the teaching as much as you can to make sure you get the most out of the learning experience. The videos created are made for and shared with your module cohort to benefit your studies.
