  • AMBS Interactive Teaching Tools

    Enhancing Lectures with Interactive Teaching Tools

Interactive learning resources can increase student engagement and understanding while providing immediate feedback.
  • Inspires, engages, enthuses learners
  • Supports tutors communicating complex concepts through animation, video, image, sound and text
  • Encourages higher learning
  • Accommodates multiple learning styles and preferences
  • Encourages independent learning and self-assessment
  • Supports students learning at their own pace
  • Supports students reviewing content they may be struggling with

The elearning tools available at the University meet a wide range of learners' needs and support interactivity. However, there may be a need to develop something specific for your course that Blackboard or other tools can't provide. Working with you and discussing ideas, the eLearning team can develop subject specific resources to support your students.

The following is a suggested time commitment but this may differ depending on individual requirements.

  • 4-8 hours over several weeks which would include
    • An initial meeting to discuss your requirements with us and produce a project plan
    • A follow on meeting to clarify what you need
    • Review and feedback on progress
    • A final meeting with us to review the product and ensure it is available to students

Please note this is just an example; we will work closely with you to develop a project where you are clear what support the eLearning team will provide and what your time commitment is.

All you need to do to request some support is to contact the eLearning team by emailing elearning@manchester.ac.uk. Please give us as much information as possible about what you want to do, which courses you are working on and which students you are supporting.
