On Monday, September 28th, 2020 Digital KORU delivered a Caribbean-wide training event for K-12 teachers and university professors who are using Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams in their practice. We thank Microsoft Caribbean for sponsoring this event. We also appreciate the promotional support provided by UNESCO’s Kingston, Jamaica office and by the Aspire Artemis Foundation. We invite you to access here the recording of this events. This webinar was presented as a contribution to educators transitioning from face to face to blended-online learning in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this webinar we discussed how to use Microsoft 365 and Teams to empower teaching in any modality: face-to-face, hybrid, and distance learning in the Caribbean.
Dr. Eliut Flores, CEO of Digital KORU and tenured professor at the Graduate School of Information Science and Technologies of the University of Puerto Rico in Rio Piedras, delivered the lecture. He discussed how to build a virtual classroom using Microsoft Teams and how to integrate additional applications provided by Microsoft 365 and other developers into the virtual classroom. This topic was discussed from the perspective of the opportunities and challenges of teaching and learning in the Caribbean. Participants asked questions through the live chat and Dr. Flores and his team answered them. The webinar was delivered in English with French subtitles.
