Teaching & Learning with Technology

At King’s we have a Learning Environment with tools that can help in classroom teaching, teaching to students at a distance and conducting examinations and coursework assessment online. We also have additional tools that can enable you to interact with your students in discussion groups, webcast and chat rooms which can be text based or audio/visual. Each of these tools are quick and simple to use and the guidance below can support you to quickly adapt your teaching to be enhanced or delivered entirely through KEATS. We also have links to how you can create discussion, students collaborate with each other and how to conduct assessment and exams.
