General Course Information

At the latest after the experiences from the Lockdown and Distance Learning periods, the indispensable importance of digital collaboration in teaching use has become clear. In particular, the ability to create and edit shared documents regardless of spatial circumstances has proven to be extremely valuable.

However, the importance of collaborative work is not limited to sharing documents. Rather, it is also about highlighting the individual strengths of each student and combining them in cooperative teams. This kind of collaboration can not only effectively combine different perspectives and skills, but also create a supportive learning environment in which students can inspire and motivate each other.


Course Content

In four lessons, we'll show you everything you need to start digital lessons with the iPad:

  • Lesson 1 (Collaborative working: Settings)
    Collaborative work on the iPad made easy: Use iCloud to work smoothly as a team. Choose and change locations as needed, organise files intuitively and optimise collaboration. iCloud settings give you the flexibility you need to work efficiently on projects and collaborate successfully.

  • Lesson 2 (Collaborative working: Infinite board)
    Optimise teamwork on the iPad! Effortlessly share files, extend collaboration with the 'infinite whiteboard' in Numbers and customise favourites. Efficiency and collaboration in perfect harmony. Get the most out of your iPad!

  • Lesson 3 (Collaborative working: iCloud & Co)
    Collaborate smart on the iPad! Access your files from anywhere via iCloud, regardless of platform. Share and edit effortlessly as a team. Create QR codes in an instant for quick content sharing.

  • Lesson 4 (Collaborative working: Inspiration & Apple Learning Center)
    Motto: “Sharing is caring”. Educators use the technologies on the iPad in a variety of ways. In this lesson, we present many practice-oriented teaching examples that invite you to try them out in the class and motivate you to do something.
    Reference is also made here to the Apple Learning Center, where the content discussed in the MOOC is repeated and summarized.
