Here are a few tools to consider using when connecting with learners. These resources are either free, or commonly available through work or higher education channels.
- ZOOM Meetings & Chat
- Microsoft Teams meeting & video conferencing
- Google Hangouts
- Google Slides
- Record a Powerpoint presentation then ‘create a video’ and upload into YouTube or other video repository. The video can be shared or kept private to allow further discussion.
- Social media platforms such as Twitter of Facebook.
