Enhance the Distance Learning Experience •Try to familiarise the students with the studio environment and what to expect before the teaching commences, to prevent the technology ‘getting in the way’ of the teaching and learning. •Ensure room is set up in advance of lecture. •Establish protocols for communication during the session – so students know how and when they can interject, make comment or ask questions. •Nominate a “chair” at each of the locations. Enhance the Distance Learning Experience Encourage discussion between students – maybe by setting up a mailing list for the course. Consider using other means to facilitate and expand on the experience: for example, email can be used for students to ask questions or nominate topics ahead of the session. Try to be inclusive – no-one should feel like an observer. Set up a Video User Group – exchange experiences, ideas and best practice.
