Tellagami can be useful if you want to add a quick comment to your online course, when you want to weave your own voice through the content, but don’t want to go to the hassle of recording a webinar. Students read so much during their time at university, so it’s a good idea to give them some sort of visual / auditory break in content for information that doesn’t necessarily require academic tone.

The audio/visual element of Tellagami is ideal for breaking up text-heavy areas in blended and online units. For fully online units, it gives students a sense of presence, particularly if the educators voice is used, and acts as a visual and auditory guide to to the content.

Educators can record a quick message at the beginning of each week / module to guide the students in the content or give a lead-in explanation to an online activity. Short anecdotes or reminders can be shared with students or educators could create a virtual tour of a location or piece of information by uploading a screenshot or image as the background.

Students can use Tellagami in a similar way to educators, and can be asked to create short animations in online courses to introduce themselves, give a quick response to an online activity, or create a virtual ‘tour’ of their context, a project they’re working on, or add an update on group work / individual formative tasks.
