Lecture recordings and clear Moodle course areas support learning

In University of Oulu, you as students can give course feedback through Peppi after each course implementation. Those implementations that you students rated as best from the point of view of the use of digital pedagogical methods and tools, had clear Moodle course areas and enabled flexible studying. In addition to clear Moodle course areas, your learning is particularly promoted by available lecture recordings.

The Digital Pedagogy and Video Services team of ICT Services regularly examines the final feedback you give on how the digital pedagogical tools and methods utilised in the course implementations have promoted your learning on a scale of 1–4. For the most recent review (6/2022-1/2023), the average of your responses was 3.45. Your open answers focused especially on lecture recordings and Moodle course areas.

In the feedback, you stated that available lecture recordings help with running over and summarizing the main points and, on the other hand, make it possible to keep up with the course if, for one reason or another, you have been prevented from participating in real-time teaching. Your feedback also highlighted the mentions of the clarity of the Moodle course areas: it is obviously important that all the necessary information and materials are in the course area at all and can be easily found.

Hybrid implementations and teaching received a lot of positive feedback from you: the possibility to choose whether you study remote or at the campus brings a lot of flexibility to everyday life, especially for students with families and working people, and in case of illness. In addition, various activating assignments given in remote lectures and materials and tasks available in the learning environment received praise from you.

From your feedback, our team got really good tips on how to develop our services. Our aim is to use the review to outline the points where our support and services should be targeted more from the perspective of your students in the future.
