Information for Management staff teaching in Singapore

Courses forming a part of the BSc Management programme for our students based in Singapore under a collaborative agreement with Kaplan Higher Education Institute and Kaplan Higher Education Academy (Kaplan Singapore) will be delivered using recorded lectures downloadable from Moodle (the College VLE) and face to face delivery of workshops and/or seminars in Singapore.

Panopto/RePlay

Link your Moodle course to the RePlay service

This has probably already have been done: you should see a RePlay bloc in the right-hand column of your course page in Moodle. 
» How to link your Moodle course to RePlay

Record your lectures on a desktop or laptop

Log into Moodle and go to your course page, under Replay you should see a link to Download Recorder (Windows and Mac versions). When installed, choose 'Log in with Moodle VLE' and use your usual RHUL login and password. 

Record your lectures live on campus

Due to quality concerns, we will NOT be using this option. All Kaplan lectures must be recorded separately using a laptop or PC. Workload points have been allocated for this.

If you are using a College PC, email itservicedesk@royalholloway.ac.uk to have the Panopto Recorder installed on your computer.

Moving or deleting recordings you have previously uploaded

Log in to http://rhul.hosted.panopto.com/ (Change the drop-down to log in via Moodle VLE, only use the Panopto option if you uploaded recordings to the old Kaplan folder).

Select the file you want to delete, go over to the Actions column and click the X icon to delete it. Select the file you want to move, go over to the Actions column and click the Settings icon, next to Folder click Edit, then change the folder in the drop-down and click Save, then close the window.

Recording tips and instructions for your Moodle pages for Kaplan courses

Please record a 5-10 minute video introduction to your course
Remember that students in Singapore will not meet a tutor until around week 4 or 5, or even later. This is their chance to see you! You may/may not choose to use slides for this.

Record each lecture with audio and PowerPoint only – video is not required
Half units require 10 lectures and full units require 20 lectures. Ppt slides must be included and must show in the recording.

Recordings must be as close as possible to 60 minutes. Introduction and concluding lectures can be shorter but all other lectures must be in the 50-60 min range.

Please remove any reference to on-campus, to terms, to reading week etc. These do NOT apply in the case of Singapore students as they complete the course in 10 or 20 weeks straight with no breaks.

Best to leave out assessment dates etc; you can post these on your moodle course page under the Course Introduction section. If you record dates etc within your presentation, then you will end up having to re-record this lecture each time a new cohort starts (twice a year for second year courses, once a year for final year courses).

Please do update recordings as you update your oncampus lectures.

Uploading content and preparation
Please upload a full course outline – provide as much detail as possible. These students do not meet you until after week 4 of their course. Pre-empt any questions they may have. Do not leave anything to chance or take anything for granted.

Please upload readings, cases, other study resources, web links etc for your course. Please also upload the ppt slides in pdf or ppt format on your Moodle page. Visit the MN2061K page for inspiration!

Please upload all workshop materials in advance! This is important as you (person going out to Singapore) will deliver 8 hrs of workshops over a weekend during your visit. Half units have one visit of 8 hrs. Full units will have two visits of 8 hrs each (16 hrs in total).

Provide information to students regarding what to read ahead of your visit. Plan your workshops taking into account the nature of delivery. Be flexible and be prepared to adapt to issues arising. For example, be prepared to revise a key topic or provide exam preparation tips and guidelines or better still, work this into your workshop materials.
