I read that article and have been wondering ever since whether other sites can use the Moodle that was designed (which I think tracks time-on-task). We need to choose an LMS and are leaning towards choosing Google Classroom which won't track time-on-task. We are also waiting to hear from the MN state dept what LMS they recommend. (I'm at Cedar Riverside Adult Ed in Mpls)

Dana Delvecchio

Were the staff who were supporting learners with troubleshooting from the IT department, or did you train teachers or other staff on how to support these learners? How many staff were needed to support all learners?
Victoria Neff
53:53
@Padam Raj Pant -- On the Moodle platform used here, the learning modules can be downloaded if there is wifi and then accessible offline
David Rosen
55:07
What kinds of problems are solved through peer to peer tech support vs those solved by your professional tech helpers?

If using a tool like Google Meet, can have students type in a letter i.e. 'Y' for yes, "R" ready to move on, etc.

Have you taught zoom class to mixed level esl students?
Ana Negoescu
01:14:40
yes, that's right! We did send instructions and provided live support in language when possible
Heide Wrigley
01:15:03
You could create break out rooms for students who share the same language - so they can help each other or run it with a bilingual tutor facilitator
Ambyr Weidner
01:15:45
