How to stay safe during online learning - Tips for learners
We pulled together some tips to help you manage this and keep you and your family members safe.
- Keep it private
- If you are attending a session online, remember you can turn off your camera. You don’t need to show your face to attend a session.
- When you join a session, turn your microphone to ‘Mute’. This will turn off your microphone so you can hear the tutor but they can’t hear you (or your children or pets playing in the background) Click ‘Unmute’ any time you want to say something.
- Don’t share any personal details or contact information while you are online.
- Think about where you are sitting if you are using your camera to attend an online session. Make sure that no one can see any personal details about you, or anything else that you don’t want to share.
- Do not share any video, images, take screenshots, record the sessions or photos of the video screen.
- Tell your family that you are doing an online class. This should stop them wandering around behind you or interrupting you.
- Be professional
- If you use the camera, wear the same clothes as if you were attending a class in your centre.
- Remember the normal rules of the classroom: be polite and respectful to the tutor and other learners, turn up on time and let others speak too.
- Be patient if the technology doesn’t always work.
- Other issues to remember
- Only access your learning session via wifi if you are using your phone. It can be very expensive to use your mobile data (especially if you use video).
- Using a mobile phone to connect can also drain your battery very quickly. Use a computer if possible.
- Do let the tutor know if you are experiencing any difficulties this can include:
- Language – are they speaking too fast/slow
- You have a disability that can affect your learning
- Anything that may affect your ability to actively take part
