Important Teaching Tips for Distance Learning from iTaLAM

With distance learning now part of the status quo, we’ve put together a list of 8 essential tips to help boost your online teaching experience:


  • Prepare a fun package of class materials for each student to use at home.
  • Use Zoom breakout rooms to allow the assistant teacher to work with smaller groups or individuals during online lessons.
  • Try shorter lessons to keep students engaged with the material.
  • Utilize Zoom’s share screen and annotate features to allow students to actively participate in lessons.
  • Use iTaLAM’s lock feature to enable or disable assignments for your students.
  • Make sure to demonstrate how to access assignments online at the end of each lesson.
  • Use Zoom’s recurring meeting feature so students in a class can join using the same link for every lesson.
  • Invite parents to participate in the first week of online classes and check in with them regularly to see if they have any questions about the platform.


As classes begin, we look forward to getting feedback on your online teaching experiences! We wish you all a successful start to the new school year, The iTaLAM Team
