Online Learning Help Page

We know that many of you have found the transition to online learning a tricky process and have produced some Help Videos to ensure that you are best equipped to use the platforms we have available to access work, submit work and continue to learn during these difficult times.

 

The majority of faculties have been using Microsoft Teams to distribute work to learners and as such the majority of the videos below deal with Teams. Show My Homework is also being used, mainly as a place to access materials if Teams doesn't work for you.

Please click the following links to take you to the video you need, alternatively click here to view the entire series on YouTube from start to finish.

Sometimes you may want to upload a photo of a piece of work. This could be handy if you can’t get the Microsoft Apps to work! To do this it’s always a good idea to take the picture using your phone/tablet’s camera first then go into the Teams App, find the correct Assignment and click “Add Work”, there are slightly different methods for both Android & Apple so choose the relevant link below.
