Enhancing Student Learning in Online Courses.
Hofstad, Marjorie E.
Seven teaching and learning tools, including course handouts, threaded discussion forums, and written assignments enhance learning in online courses by enabling students to deepen their understanding of course material and reduce anxiety about the online setting and their performance in the class. These tools have been used in 24 community college sections of Lifespan Development Psychology online with 720 students ranging from 18 to 62 years of age. Student response has been favorable, as expressed in student journals, online discussion, informal email messages, and course evaluations. Additional assignments, handouts, and discussion forums are suggested to make a complete course template. The potential problems of cheating on exams and the lack of in-person contact are discussed.
