Transform Engagement: Interaction and Online Course Design

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2020 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Interaction is the glue that holds the learning environment together. Rich media tools and thoughtful student, teacher and content interactions can be used to inform “how we teach”. Examples of these tools include avatars, digital storytelling, interactive online poster boards, YouTube and other instructional videos, remote polling, video conferencing, and podcasts. Strategically incorporating technology enablers serves to increase student engagement and support learning. This session will provide a framework to design an interactive and engaging online course.
