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.
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.
- Group work in Blackboard or collaborative rooms in Blackboard Collaborate
- Group work and breakout rooms i Zoom
- Opinion exchange: Chat rooms in O365 Teams or chat rooms in Blackboard
- Collaborative writing in Office 365
- Engage the class with for example Mentimeter
- Padlet is an interactive whiteboard where teachers and students can collaborate in real time creating, discussing and organizing content
- Engage the class with Kahoot (free access premium)

Privacy in online teaching
Several of the tools NTNU offers for online teaching also provide the opportunity to make recordings.
When recording the teaching, you must follow requirements and rules related to privacy and processing of personal data in online teaching.
When streaming teaching, it is voluntary for the student to participate with image and sound, and the student can control this. You do not need to obtain consent, as this is defined as a general interest, cf. Act relating to universities and university colleges.
