Teaching considerations when creating online lectures
If your PowerPoint lecture is longer than 20 minutes, you may want to consider breaking it into 15 – 20 minute segments and adding an activity (reflective question(s), discussion questions for students to discuss in groups on a Moodle discussion forum, short activity that prompts students to put the ideas to ‘action’, etc.)
