Creation of online text based content or handbooks/workbooks with optional formative activities
Who is this training for?
For those staff looking to create online resources that are text heavy (such as handbooks, workbooks or web pages), with optional interactive quizzes and activities.
The information and links below aim to guide you through using the tools available and give you some insight into what can be achieved with the software.
What is Softchalk?
Softchalk is a desktop app used to create online lessons, published like a webpage. These lessons are designed to be read or completed page by page. They can contain videos, quiz questions, activities (e.g. labelling exercise, crossword puzzle, card sorting). Softchalk has its own cloud based storage system (Softchalk Cloud) and a grade centre which stores student progress. All lessons are hosted on this cloud storage system and distributed via a link. You can link the same lesson in several different places, but it will only need to be updated once.
Watch the video below for an introduction from SoftChalk and click through the example links to view some different lesson styles.

Live Drop In Help Sessions
Once you have finished our online training, you have the opportunity to attend one of our Softchalk training sessions.
We want to ensure that our live training sessions cover your personal requirements, rather than generic “training”. Therefore completing the online training is a precursor to our live sessions. While we get to grips with how many people we can support at once, we will be capping the attendees at the sessions, though the cap may be lifted over the summer.
Live sessions will be based around Q and A as well as chatting about how softchalk can be adapted to your area of teaching. To book, click below:
