Moving from Physical Classroom-Based Delivery to Live Online Delivery

Professor Theo Lynn on Moving from Physical Classroom based learning to live online delivery.
One of the challenges is that (a) faculty are not necessarily trained for live online delivery and (b) students aren’t either.
A lot of focus is on the supply-side (faculty) however remember students neither have the discipline nor training to engage with synchronous video for long periods. We need to focus on training them too for a new reality.
I largely believe you should forget about live sessions longer than 45 minutes (and that may be long!) at a time so if you have a 2 hour slot, maybe do 45 minutes than 30 minute break than another 45 minutes OR move some to asynchronous (canned/recorded) learning.
Needless to say, contiguous timetabled classes (for example 2 x 2 hour sessions) are probably just not a good idea.
Manage student expectations of what a session will look like and then plan the specific detail of your 45 minute session.
I snipped one part from @flexlabs infographic which I thought is useful.
