Record yourself presenting your lecture using Zoom, and post the video in one of the following ways:
- Streamed on Zoom (see Managing Cloud Recordings)
- Upload to and post a link to the video file on Box
- If you are using Canvas, you can upload the video in the rich text editor.
Record short lecture “snippets” using Digital Dialog
- Present and pose questions using Text, Video, or Audio
- Create a discussion prompt once and share it with the class, with small groups, or with individuals for one-on-one discussions
Create PowerPoint Slides with narration and share them by:
- Posting on a Content Page or in a Digital Dialog Discussion
- Exporting the files as an MP4 and uploading the video file on Box then linking to the video on a Content page in Learning Suite (If you are using Canvas, you can upload the video in the rich text editor).
- Posting the video or PowerPoint file on Box and posting a link on a Content page in Learning Suite

Recommendations and Suggestions
- Asynchronous doesn’t have to mean “not interactive.” Consider ways to engage students using discussion boards, chat rooms, TA labs, homework groups, etc.
- Asynchronous can take on a lot of different formats:
- Lecture style videos
- Screen captures
- Interactive content & quizzes
- Preparation ahead of time and then some interaction with the professor, TAs, or other students
