VU Collaborate sites for self-directed learning
VU Collaborate online course
The Connected Learning team offer a fully online course to learn about VU Collaborate and the main learning tools that are integrated with it. We recommend it for all staff new to VU.
As a guide, it will probably take around 2 hours to complete each module if you are comfortable using computers and know a little about VU Collaborate.
The course is divided into three modules:
Module 1 is for sessional staff, tutors and those who need to work in unit spaces but do not need to build courses. It covers navigating, communicating and assessing in VU Collaborate.
Module 2 looks at building some materials such as videos with Panopto and H5P interactive learning activities. It covers attendance, groups, interactive online learning activities, video creation and Office 365.
Module 3 looks at parts of VU Collaborate for designing units such as building assessments, grade books, online quizzes and rubrics.
