Description

The video lesson covers five ways to engage students using collaboration tools in the LMS and available online.

Objectives for this video:

  • Use social collaboration tools for learning (e.g., Twitter Padlet, Voicethread).
  • Use a poll/survey as like a “hands-up activity” to gather input from a large cohort and follow up on the results (e.g. poll everywhere).
  • Add a "watercooler" discussion for community building.
  • Schedule “how's it going check-ins."
  • Encourage short student-recorded video to communicate and build presence.
