2. Re-use last year's lecture recordings
If you recorded your lectures last year you can share those with this year's cohorts.
Students can be reminded to use these resources in a number of active ways, not just passive viewing.
3. Record at your desktop and make available to cohorts
You can record new material by downloading the Re:View (Panopto) desktop recorder software. You will need a headset (and mic) to record. A webcam is optional. Recordings are uploaded to the Re:View (Panopto) website for your students to access via URL.
You could also record narration directly in PowerPoint and save the presentation as a video, uploading to a folder in Re:View for your students to access. Do not upload video files directly to Moodle - this will slow your course down and make it difficult (or impossible) to backup.
4. Run a live meeting / webinar
You can use Adobe Connect. This is a web conferencing tool that provides a virtual meeting space.
You can use Microsoft Teams Meeting. This is primarily an online meeting tool, like Skype.

Using IT services for distance teaching
There are a range of IT services available to help support teaching at a distance - this includes using Microsoft Teams to run live events and the preparation of online teaching resources using various methods, such as voice recorded over your PowerPoint slides, screen recordings and other videos.
1．For pre-recorded events (slides, screen recordings, video and audio)
Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to record an audio voice-over on PowerPoint slides using the Narration feature. The audio is saved as part of the PowerPoint file. You can also save the presentation as a video if needed.
While Panopto is often used for capturing and the playback of lectures, it can also be used as a recorder to capture your screen, as well as slides, voiceover and webcam video. The created video can be easily published to Moodle, and auto captions can be generated. You can learn more about accessing and using Panopto below.
eStream allows you to record your screen, webcam video and voice. eStream can be used to store and host videos created videos, or the created video can be published directly to Moodle. There is no auto captioning function, but you can manually upload captions to a video.
2. For live events (webinars, group and 1-1 tutorials and class discussion)
Microsoft Teams is the recommended tool for any live events, for example webinars, for carrying out group tutorials or to allow online video or voice conferencing for class discussions. See the instructions below for information on how best to use Microsoft Teams for live events.
Current advice is to use the Zoom Video conference service for online teaching unless you are already using another technology (e.g Echo 360, Camtasia, Teams, etc) which you should continue to use
Online classes and seminars/meetings
An alternative to live lectures and meetings is Zoom which is a secure, easy platform for video and audio conferencing, messaging, and webinars across mobile and desktop/laptop.
Pre-recorded lectures are an alternative to live lectures. Record a video as a way of delivering teaching to students. You can record videos with Zoom, It is also possible to record videos with other tools such as Echo 360, Camtasia and Stream (available via Office 365).
