Help with how the teachers can make very clear recordings using Smart Notebook remotely (while at home so that they don't need to be standing in their classroom with their interactive whiteboard) so that it can be uploaded easily into Google Classroom for children to access at home or at school.

Possibly video lessons if we need to move to this

we use Tapestry but advice on videos etc would be good

Support with uploading videos, recording voice overs on powerpoints etc.
