It also enables you to communicate with your students and support their learning at a time when they're unable to attend lectures and tutorials in person. Using nothing more than your smartphone or personal computer and uRewind, powered by Panopto, you can create, edit and share teaching videos that look and sound great. Read on to find out how!

This short guide introduces you to some key ideas for you to incorporate into your online learning and teaching.

1. Communicating with your learners via Blackboard

The two main Blackboard tools to enable you to easily communicate with your students are by sending announcements and emails. The two short linked videos provide a step-by-step guide. We also recommend selecting the option to ‘Send Announcement as Email’, as this means that not only will the announcement appear in the course, all enrolled students to the course will also receive an email copy to their PolyU email account.

After one or more students have taken the quiz and you try to modify any question, Blackboard allows you to modify the questions prompting a warning message:
