A guide to moving online swiftly

Interactive Resource

One of our learning designers, Tim Thatcher, has created an interactive resource to assist your staff, teaching teams, and your learners to transition to the online world.

This resource provides support for:

  • Developing an online learning ecosystem – how you can set-up an online environment. This includes tasks, activities and information that supports the concept of knowledge and skill acquisition.
  • Using an online learning ecosystem – how you can facilitate online learning and bridge the gap to learners.
  • Preparing learners to use an online learning system  – how you can prepare learners for this online journey.
