Teaching real time

When students participate in teaching at the same time as you. Other words used about this, are streaming, live webinar and synchronous teaching. 

Video in teaching

Video can be used in teaching in many different ways. Students often benefit more from several shorter videos than a longer recording of an entire lecture. Smaller videos are easier to build into a holistic teaching plan and can be used more flexibly afterwards.

Online teaching - recommended software

Student active learning

Activities that are not pure lectures from you to students, but that initiate some activity from the participants. For example group works, collaboration and discussions. Student active learning is suitable in both syncronous and asynchronous learning situations.
