Session C14

2nd Annual Conference on Teaching and Learning at CNM

Interactive and Engaging Online Activities

Gene Higgins, Distance Learning

San Juan, 2:00-3:15


It seems that instructors are aware that fully online and hybrid courses are supposed to have some form of collaborative learning within the course, but are not sure how to do that. I’ve heard instructors say, “Yes, I include a discussion board assignment, and it is graded, but some students would rather just lose those points than participate.” I would like to present some activities that are meant to take place online in discussion boards, synchronous voice chats, and/or IM, either alone or in groups, that are compelling and engaging, and in which online learning is enhanced.
