Communication

Communication is vital in the online environment. To get a good start, I communicated in a variety of ways to set the standard, as well as making students feel comfortable within the course. Students received a welcome newsletter along with a welcome phone call.

Discussion

An area of struggle that students experience is with discussion the concepts that they have learned. For the month of October, I emailed students and posted tips and examples of how to really "rev" up their discussion posts.

Using Resources

As a way to increase student participation and promote learning, I incorporate other websites and tools into courses. Students are encouraged to utilize those resources and are given opportunities to share what they have learned and earn extra points.
