T‍ech Workshop: September 12th 2022

Available below is the TEL Te‍ch Workshop from September 12th.

Contents

This workshop opens with a recap of previous workshops, including signing into your OCA email account and other OCA facilities, followed by a basic overview and use cases of OCA Learn, OCA Spaces and Panopto, before moving onto a brief Q&A segment with students in attendance.

Additional Notes

At 16:35 where I reference a "2020/21" learning log template, this particular template has been renamed and is referred to as "Undergraduate Learning Log Template" and is the default template when creating a new site within OCA Spaces. Students whose course materials contain ten projects and assignment should use this particular template. Students whose course contains five or six parts and assignments should use the "Learning Log (Level 1/HE4)" and "Learning Log (Level 2/HE5)" respectively.

At 18:11 where I encountered an "Your site is currently being set up. Please check back in a few minutes!" error message and would again later encountered the same error, this has since been resolved by allowing sufficient time for the site to be created and required no further action.

At 20:00 where the 'Create Post' option wasn't visible, this issue was caused as I'd deselected the menu in a previous demonstration and came as a result of having to use an existing learning log whilst I waited for the new learning log to be created. No student should ever be affected by this issue.
