The Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning has issued guidance on conducting supervisions online.
The key messages from the guidance suggest:
The CCTL guidance specifically suggests the use of Microsoft Teams or Google Meet for supervisions and has issued guides on using both:
- MS Teams- https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/sites/www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/files/conducting_a_supervision_with_teams.pdf
- Google Meet- https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/sites/www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/files/conducting_a_supervision_with_google_meet.pdf
- Zoom is also a useful platform but be aware of the 40 minute time limit on the free version.
There are a number of ways to collaborate live with each other during supervisions.
These applications are freely available and offer the ability for remote users to come together on a virtual “canvas” to write, draw and brainstorm together. Some notable applications include:
Working together on documents
The same live remote collaboration can also take place when working together on documents. The platforms listed below all allow users to remotely work together on the same document file at the same time.
