a few tips

engage learners

     It is necessary that faculty be adequately trained in the tools and capabilities of their learning management system. They should not only be the subject matter experts of their course, but also be able to expertly manage discussion boards, assignments, grade book, and other online tools that enable them to interact with learners.

     What course management tools a faculty member elects to use should be determined by their strategic learning objectives. Whether a completely online or hybrid course, tools such as discussion boards can be invaluable resources, but if faculty don’t know how to motivate students to post or how to manage a large course for scalability, they can end up wasting valuable time and learning opportunities. Students can also become easily frustrated with an instructor that doesn’t know how to properly post grades or give feedback for student work online.

     We can work with you to easily break down the learning management system to its essential elements so it becomes non-threatening. Because knowledge empowers, we will work to determine what course tools best align with your course objectives and teach you the benefits of these tools, as well as their limitations and workarounds, and ways to manage these tools effectively so that you can excel as an instructor in the online space.
