Host a 1-on-1 Interaction

One-on-one communication is essential in many academic settings, such as thesis supervision, providing feedback and tutoring. When replacing offline the most obvious method to go for is (video)calling, as it is most closely related to real live communication.


In the case of sensitive information or feedback, it is recommended to simulate real live communication. 

  • (Video) calling - Synchronous
    You can use regular phone calls or Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams. For the latter, making use of screen sharing can support collaboration.  

  • Real-time collaboration - (A)synchronous
    You can use One Drive to let students collaborate in a document
