Chats and feedback tools can serve as asynchronous exchange between students and teachers, e.g. to check the current state of knowledge of students or to collect questions from students. Many audio and video conferencing systems or even PANDA have an integrated chat. E-mails can also be used to collect questions.

Chat and feedback with PANDA[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Through the PANDA learning platform there are a variety of activities and tasks that can be used to design asynchronous teaching. Panda enables course-related administration. The access is only for students of the course / University of Paderborn

Other chat and feedback tools[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

If you only want to exchange short messages, you can use text- or language-based chat systems. There you can send text messages to each other in groups, individually with other users or topic-related in individual channels/streams, which in contrast to e-mails are displayed immediately after sending and enable a relatively synchronous exchange.

  • Mumble
    Mumble is a voice chat that can be used directly in a browser, an app or a desktop client.
    PINGO is a live feedback system developed at the University of Paderborn which can be used browser-based in large courses. Information about the project can be found at Peer Instruction for very large groups.
  • Other Life Feedback Systems
    In addition to the options listed here, the staff unit Educational Innovations and University Didactics has compiled further tools for chat and feedback for you.

E-Mail[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

E-mails can be used to collect questions from smaller groups of students without the need for additional tools. There are some helpful functions in Webmail for categorizing and sorting and for collaboration in working groups:

  • Automatic filtering of e-mails
    You can set up filter rules via webmail so that your e-mails are automatically filtered and distributed to the correct folders, for example.
  • Mailinglists
    The IMT offers you the possibility to create and administer mailing lists. A mailing list is, simply explained, a list of e-mail addresses. If you write an e-mail to a mailing list, it will be distributed to all addresses that are on the list. It is not advisable to distribute large files via e-mail, as it cannot be guaranteed that the mailboxes of the recipients always have sufficient storage space. Alternative forms of file exchange can be found under Using file exchange for digital teaching.
  • Webmail - shared folders
    To enable shared access to a mail folder, you can create a folder that can be accessed by multiple users, i.e. "shared" by multiple users.
