Taking TEE online

TEE makes local disciples

Since the pandemic hit in 2020, online TEE has become  a real and practical issue for most Increase members. 

On this resource page we want to give you some ideas and issues to consider. We have materials that show what some teams have learnt during the lockdowns. We also have links to wider resources and tutorials for online learning. 

We want to encourage you to use the current excitement and steep learning curve to think about the future and to figure out a strategy that works for your specific context. This may not be a fully online system, but rather a 'blend' of online and face-to-face learning. When we use the term blended learning, we mean a system where some parts of the TEE course happen online, and other parts happen ‘in real life’. What parts are best done online, and what parts face-to-face, depends entirely on your context.

Widely Available Tools 

We have collected a selection of tutorials for Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google meet for you

Microsoft TEAMS and 

Google MEET

(formerly Hangouts Meet) offer more than Zoom, especially because of their integration with Office 365 (Microsoft) and G-Suite (Google). However, Zoom may be easiest for one-off meetings and short-term use. For regular, long-term team or class meetings, TEAMS and MEET are worth to consider.

Loom

is a screen and video capture tool. It is NOT a tool for video conferencing! It's simple, easy to use, and offers good presentation features with simple cloud-based editing functions. It offers free, unlimited cloud storage, but you can share and download videos.
