Get Your 2.0 Thinking Cap On!

Now that you've read through the articles above and hopefully noted some of the keys ways to engage your students, we want you to move forward with your creativity. There are many tools that are available online, so your students can hear/see who you are and how much you are invested in their success in your class.


Look at the following sites for ideas:

www.smore.com

www.goanimate.com

www.tellagami.com

www.prezi.com

Remember, bridging the gap in an online environment is important to Student Engagement and Student Retention. If you can engage a student, then you have a better chance of retaining them and leading them to educational success.


Success for students, equals success for our Faculty and success for Bryant & Stratton College.
