Tools for Engaging Online Learners: Increasing Student Involvement in Online Classes
Acosta-Tello, Enid
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v15 Oct 2010
Faculty who have taught in a traditional classroom are finding themselves having to teach in a setting in which they are unable to interact face-to-face with their students. Online instruction increases yearly. An important factor in the success of online instruction is the degree of student engagement. Though academic content remains substantially the same, the different nature of the online environment should cause faculty to re-examine the methods they use to deliver this instruction and engage students. Online faculty need to investigate new methods of enhancing student engagement. This paper proposes methods of engaging the learner through the online environment.
