LEO Guides: What is LEO?


Workshop details

There are two workshops running pre-semester 1 in 2020 – Getting started and Managing units. Getting started is for those new to teaching at ACU who have not used LEO before or those who need a refresher. Managing units includes information on setting up units, groups and assignments and managing more advanced features for those in charge of a unit. 

The workshops will also have extra challenges for those who have used LEO in the past.

Each workshop runs for 2 hours.

If you are new to teaching at ACU and have never used LEO (Learning Environment Online) or need a refresher – this session is for you. Ask questions and develop your confidence in LEO skills in this workshop.

The workshop provides an overview of common LEO components, and offers a chance to practice adding and editing resources and student activities. We will also discuss where to access help and support for LEO.
