What’s New

Module Trailers

Module trailers are 1 to 2 minute short videos that give students a preview of your module.  The aim of having a module trailer is to excite students about the module and its relevance. Impactful module trailers have the potential to also dispel fears or uncertainty among students who want to sign up for your module. CIT conducts regular training sessions for faculty to create their module trailers. For more information on these training sessions, please visit CIT website at ..

NUS TeamUp

TeamUp allows you to create teams with whom you can chat, exchange links and files. This can be done via the web, mobile or desktop apps. Unlike other chat apps, you need not share your phone numbers to use it. Also, replies to messages can be threaded so that communication is kept in context.
In TeamUp, you can group chat with everyone in a team. For large teams, you can set up smaller private groups. Like most messaging service, you can also direct message other members in your team. The service is open to staff and students. TeamUp can be used for modules, projects or any other situation where group communication is needed.
