  3. Quarantine Lectures

    The University of the Netherlands started Quarantine Lectures At the moment, many lectures, professors, and university staff are working on recording videos, moving their courses online, and designing online assignments. Marc van Oostendorp, professor at the Radboud University, has made an appeal to his colleagues: make these recorded lectures available to the public. The University of the Netherlands, with support from the Association of Universities in The Netherlands (VSNU), has developed a website realise this initiative. On, lecturers can upload their recorded lectures. After uploading, the University of the Netherlands checks these lectures for quality and copyright. After the check, the videos are published on the Quarantine Colleges-YouTube channel. Would you like to give a lecture from your living room without students but have a lot of people see it?

  4. Leestip: Toolgericht of doelgericht? Drie wijze lessen voor afstandsonderwijs.

    In de snelle transitie naar online of afstandsonderwijs die docenten(teams), opleidingen, faculteiten en instellingen nu noodgedwongen doormaken is het verleidelijk om reflectie op didactiek even terzijde te schuiven en te focussen op de techniek. Geen tijd om stil te staan, we moeten online, en als het kan een beetje vlug. Onverstandig, volgens de zes auteurs van 'Toolgericht of doelgericht? Drie wijze lessen voor afstandsonderwijs'.

  5. FAQ: Remote testing and assessment

    How can I assess students remotely? Remote testing and assessments are still a great challenge for everyone. At, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences offers an overview of the current insights surrounding online testing (Dutch). What possibilities does online proctoring offer?  In some cases, examining through online proctoring can be a solution. For more background information on online proctoring, see this white paper from SURF (English). However, in the short term, online proctoring does not seem to be a solution for large-scale exams. You can read the advice of the SIG Digital Testing (Dutch) on online proctoring and the article by Wilfred Rubens (Dutch). Which method is the safest? To be able to make a well-founded decision as to which assessment method to use, SURF developed a choice making model (English) for safe assessment. Both the risk of fraud, and the interest ('stake') of the test results are taken into account. This model provides guidance to examination and test committees and other parties involved in determining whether the intended test situation is satisfactory, and to see which methods of test administration are suitable within the curriculum. Are take-home exams the solution? This depends on what you would like to test and on the available capacity. Of course, these kind of exams require a lot of review work. To help you consider when take-home exams are a solution, the SIG Digital testing collected 5 articles on this (all in English): A take-home exam to assess professional skills Take home examination papers Open book and take home exams A guide for academics - Open book exams Open book examinations Can you test students using Zoom? In this article (Dutch) you can read how Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) administers tests via Zoom. The university was already forced by the riots in November last year to bring their education entirely online.

  7. FAQ: Open educational resources

    By using available digital educational resources made by colleagues, you as a lecturer, can quickly start digitising your course. Digital educational resources come in all shapes and sizes, such as digital (practice) tests, virtual reality simulations, or knowledge clips students view prior to the lecture. By using an open license, you give others permission to use or adapt the material with certain conditions. This way colleagues can benefit from each other's work. Do you want to ask a question to colleagues in the sector? Or do you have a topic that you would like to discuss with others? Then go to the forum and post your question.
