About the interactive session:

Wondering what are the basics of an online course? Do you want to be innovative? But you don’t know where to start? If you have any of these questions, then maybe Small Private Online Course, commonly referred to as SPOC, might work for you. Come and join us in our series of TELI seminars on SPOC and learn its basic foundation and the different practices being applied in developing it.

In this interactive session, we will look closely into several SPOCs that are currently being developed in HKU. You will have hands-on experience with the different stages that spans from knowing the basic requirements to restructuring your course into an online mode, and from making a concise script to representing it visually through a storyboard. Plus, you can experience a mock-up studio filming and say a few lines in front of the camera. We will also explore different possibilities and options for collaboration to make your class more interactive, fun, and accessible through the use of different technologies and expertise available at TELI. This seminar is open to the first 30 registered participants to ensure that there is enough time to accommodate questions, provide comments, and give feedback for each participant. Late registrants will be placed in the waiting list and contacted when spots are available.
