Online Escape Rooms As A Student Induction Activity

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


In this session I talk about how Zoom and Google Forms can be used to create an online escape room that works well as a student induction activity. Students are split into groups and work through a series of puzzles and problems that can cover some foundational technical content from their chosen discipline, as well as introductory knowledge about life at university. We ran this event in October with our new Stage 1 students and it was well-received. The advantage of using these tools is that a relatively complex event can be created without technical or programming expertise, and once created it can be easily reused for subsequent cohorts.
