While the term “community” has been overused to the point of becoming a commodity these days, there is real power in developing community among your online learners. We know that learners can greatly benefit, both educationally and emotionally, when instructors of online courses take care to foster a sense of community within the online environment. This session will examine techniques that can be employed using tools readily available within the LMS to foster the actions and interactions that promote community and relationship-building in online courses.
The Forum activity is one of the most popular and educationally powerful activities available in the LMS, but are you maximizing its potential? In this session we'll explore the various forum types, how to assess learner participation, and examine some of the most recent updates to the forum activity that make it easier than ever to use.
