MUT turns to MS Teams to enhance multimodal learning

Cebo Nyondo

In an initiative to enhance the quality of multimodal teaching and learning at MUT, TLDC and IT&N are rolling out training for academic staff to use Microsoft Teams to deliver their lectures. MS Teams, which is already a staple for virtual meetings at MUT, would add the much-needed interactive dimension to remote learning. The training of staff was being rolled out by Cebo Nyondo of the TLDC, Nkosana Jijimba and Phumlani Ngobese both from the IT&N department.

“We have been using MS Teams extensively at MUT since the Lockdown started and we know that it is great for virtual interaction,” said Nkosana. “It also has an option for recording the sessions which will be of great benefit to our online academic programme as students can always go back and access the recorded lectures.”
