FLO: Basic building

Course description

Every topic has a Flinders Learning Online (FLO) site, whether it is taught face to face, fully online, or with a blended approach. Building and maintaining a FLO teaching site is the responsibility of the Topic Coordinator or convener of the topic, who may work with other teachers or eLearning professionals to develop the learning environment. 

This hands-on workshop will step you through the basics of organising your topic, adding activities and resources, and setting up a user-friendly environment that makes sense and looks good. You can also use this workshop as an opportunity to refresh or practice your FLO editing skills. 

Workshop participants will be manually enrolled into a shared sandpit (practice/play) site.
