History lecturers co-facilitate: Interactive online course

History lecturers, Susan Newton-King, Andrew Bank, Bob Edgar and Riedwaan Moosage have created an online environment. These lecturers co-facilitate and share course material. This module focuses on the ‘historiography of the British campaign to end the Atlantic slave trade in all British territories’ – throughout the British Empire.

The course content is structured into chapters with:
–  links to external websites;
–  videos;
–  documents; and
–  biographies of some historians.

These lecturers have created announcements to notify the students about activities; and relevant reading material for class preparation and tutorials. These announcements are linked to students’ email clients (available via mobile devices).

Furthermore the students are currently engaging in Google Blogger training workshops which enables:
– collaborative writing; and
– sharing ideas around specific topics related to the course content.

NB: Please note that the eTeaching platform (Chisimba) will be phased out by the end of 2014. Hence lecturers are encouraged to make use of the iKamva (Sakai) platform.
