Motivating the Online Student
This presentation is in a fishbowl setting - I'll be interested to see how that plays out beyond the circular arrangement of the chairs. The presentation is being given by online instructional analysts who investigate classes to insure that quality instruction is happening. What an interesting idea!
Environment - be warm and welcoming
classroom organization - make it easy for students to find what they need to to know
- bonus points
- guest speakers (something that gets students excited about course content)
In the end, there wasn't anything new and I'm not sure what made the presentation "fishbowl" like, but it was interesting.
