Teaching Tip: Let students stream your lessons in their spare time

This tip is based on feedback from 338 students across four Los Angeles college campuses.

Record audio lessons for streaming. While video lectures are a wonderful way to humanize your course, consider also including a variety of audio-only lessons (with identical transcripts for accessibility), then upload them to a streaming service outside of the Canvas platform (I recommend SoundCloud — most students already have it on their phones).
