The increase in the recent technological developments and the COVID-19 pandemic have led educators to have different roles along with the traditional ones. One of them is growing into the role of a tech-literate educator which includes selecting, evaluating, and making use of web tools. The aim of this talk is to support teachers with skills and knowledge that will enable them to conduct their live and asynchronous lessons more effectively. In this talk, tools that can be used for interactive instructional design will also be explained.
