  • Good practice in online teaching, Course structure and navigation,
  • Methods of delivery, interactivity and group work,
  • Digital accessibility, Digital assessment and Tracking student engagement.

This modular course can be taken at your own pace and includes guidance on using many of our core learning technologies.

Moodle Essentials, KentPlayer, Turnitin and OMBEA training

Did you know we have online training modules for each of our core technologies?

Each of these interactive courses can be taken in your own time, and even award a badge upon completion!


Archiving exam scripts

Don’t forget to download student exam scripts for archival!

Turnitin isn’t a file repository, so make sure your school has copies of student exam scripts.

You can find information on how to do this on the Administering completed exams in Moodle page.

Kentplayer Video Captions

You can now add automated captions to KentPlayer recordings you’ve created.

Watch the video here to learn how to do this yourself; Adding captions to a video in KentPlayer
