New Year, New Resources
As well as contributing to the variety of resources on the EDTL website, the Student Interns also create various resources around the web to help students navigate the world of digital learning. These are some of the resources created recently.
There are so many aspects to online learning that it can sometimes be overwhelming. This is why the Student Interns are constantly working on new resources to make online learning as beneficial and straightforward as possible for students and lecturers alike. Below are some of the resources the student interns have been working on over the last while!
The EDTL’s YouTube channel has been constantly updated over the last few months, largely with student intern Aoibhinn’s work on Microsoft Office tutorials. The channel now has a great variety of tutorial videos on the Microsoft Office platform, ranging from creating a table in Excel to managing citations in Word. These resources are very useful for sharing with your students, especially as the video format allows for students to follow along easily.
The EDTL Instagram is constantly busy and always bursting with new content for students and educators alike, and our latest campaign involves highlighting some features of the platforms that we have come to use everyday. From MS Teams to Blackboard, the Instagram team have plenty of hidden tidbits to share whatever service you are using to learn.
Despite the title, this ‘learning how to learn’ course featuring contributions from our NUIG Student Intern Lauren Muldowney is applicable to anybody who would prefer a more structured approach to learning about online learning. This course takes you on a structured path through the world of online learning, covering areas such as ‘Getting More Out of Online Learning” and “Being a Successful Online Learner”, and is a great refresher for these crucial skills as we enter the new semester.
Our UL EDTL Student Intern, Alice Hynes, has been working with the EDTL team at UL to develop this resource which explains the resources that both UL and the EDTL Project offer students and educators alike. There are infographics aimed at students across various disciplines, as well as explainer videos featuring both EDTL Team member David Moloney and EDTL Student Intern Alice Hynes explaining the digital resources available for both staff and students.
Our Student Exam Guide was released in a timely fashion before Christmas, and since then it has become a very popular resource. Featuring crowdsourced tips from our entire Student Intern team, this is a great resource for students to ensure they are prepared for assessment – whether it be an end of semester examination or an assignment. It’s also available in the Irish language.
