This article describes how you can use Feishu for remote teaching and learning. Feishu features mentioned in this article include Calendar, Meetings, and Docs.
Remote teaching can help minimize the impact that unexpected circumstances may have on schooling and use tech to enrich the learning experience. The best practices below offer practical solutions to common scenarios such as teaching remotely, grading student's work, and working on group projects.
📅 Use Calendar to schedule courses
You can use Calendar to create and sync course schedules and provide easy access for students. To create schedules for different types of courses, such as mandatory and elective classes, simply add new calendars. Students can then subscribe to relevant calendars to see their courses, which are displayed as events with specific dates and times. You can also edit an event to add lecture materials for students to read before class, or invite people who need to attend a particular class to the corresponding event.
💻 Use Meetings for remote teaching
For classes with 0 people or less, you can start a video meeting to interact with students. Share your lecture materials as Docs to let everyone in the meeting discuss and even co-edit them in real time.
For even bigger classes, you can livestream a video meeting and copy and share the livestream link. Students can open the link using a web browser to watch the livestream. Each livestream supports millions of viewers. You can also record the session so students can easily review the lecture after class.
📃 Use Docs to assign and grade homework
Using Docs to assign and grade homework can help students receive timely feedback.
In addition to simple text editing, Docs supports the insertion of images, tables, files, and more. This makes it easy for students to submit different types of homework assignments.
Using Docs, instructors can also give feedback in various ways. You can comment on specific pieces of text to help students make the appropriate changes, or leave comments at the bottom of the document to give overall feedback. You can also click the thumbs-up icon at the bottom of a document to let students know it's a job well done!
👬 Use Docs for group projects
Group projects often require a lot of discussion and collaboration. With Docs, group members can collaborate on a document at the same time and complete the project efficiently.
You can insert a table for project management and track the progress of each task. You can also edit the document with others in real time. All changes are saved automatically, and everyone will see the latest version without having to send files back and forth.
In addition, you can leave or reply to comments and @mention relevant students, who will then receive an instant Feishu notification. Since there's no need to worry about missed messages, collaboration and communication are much more effective.
