How do I interact with my online students?

A good deal of the interaction in the class occurs in the discussion forums. We encourage robust interaction in the discussion area to discuss course concepts and engage your students. Student satisfaction in the course measurably increases when there is rich discussion about current content with their instructor and peers in the class. Make sure to communicate clearly and frequently - Ask questions, reply to student posts, post audio and video of yourself at select points. On the other hand, avoid using QuickMail and email as a communication mainstay. Keep your conversation with your students part of the class record by keeping it in the eLearning class itself. Please ask your Instructional Designer if you would like some specific tips or advice.
