Tools for Blended Learning

Blended Learning Steps of deliver, design, engage, assess and evaluate

This brief guide is intended to complement the Principles for Blended Learning materials by providing some practical suggestions on using our tools for teaching to help prepare you for blended learning come September.  We have presented some key elements for consideration, enabling you to choose the most relevant tools for your specific teaching and learning activities.

Accessbility and inclusivity are integral components of every element of the move to blended learning,

These elements are listed below and can be accessed through the left hand menu:

  • Design: Do I need to review my course design?
  • Develop: How do I adapt my course for blended learning?
  • Engage: How do I engage and monitor my students online?
  • Assess: What are my options for assessment?
  • Evaluate: How do I evaluate my course?

Support for Staff and Students

The 'tools for teaching' that we reference are the ones which are supported by the University of Aberdeen. These are the tools which we will provide assistance with and help you get started with using them to support your learning and teaching activities.  Much of the help and guidance on using these tools are available through Toolkit or you can book on a course through the course booking system.
