EDU Webinar series

content

Below, you will find the dates and times for our upcoming short sessions and webinars.

We will run the sessions using Webex Meetings and will record them. Recordings will be uploaded after the session and can be found at the bottom of this page. 

As staff are continuing to teach online, EDU have organised a number of short sessions and webinars to provide additional support and guidance for FE and HE teaching staff in using the tools in Brightspace. Two types of events will be offered:

  • Short sessions:
    These will be quick 15 minute sessions with a Q&A, often targeted at more advanced users of the Brightspace tools to provide new impulses for using them.

  • Webinars:
    These will be 1-hour sessions during which we will go more indepth which might be particularly useful to staff who are new to using some of the tools in Brightspace.

  • Drop-ins:
    1-hour drop-ins will be available for staff (usually when we have no scheduled webinars). Come along with any Brightspace questions you may have. First come first served!
