Quick Look: Importing Existing Online Lectures Into Your Class Site

October 12, 2020 | 0 Minute Read

CoursePlus Quick Looks is a series of video-based posts that demonstrate some of the intermediate to advanced features of CoursePlus. The videos assume a basic level of knowledge with CoursePlus (signing in, setting up a site, adding files to the Online Library).

Faculty who teach in traditionally online courses spend a lot of time working with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to develop professionally produced lectures. Many of these lectures would be perfectly appropriate in on-campus courses, or in other classes taught by the same faculty — especially in this period of the “Virtual Plus” campus. In this post in the CoursePlus Quick Looks video series, we see how easy it is to take one of those CTL-produced lectures and import it into any class that you teach. Doing this reduces reliance on lecturing live Zoom sessions and allows you more time to collaborate interactively with students instead.
