"We are often so fixated on online learning’s shortcomings that we slight its unique advantages. Students can have anytime, anywhere access to class materials. We can make a wealth of primary sources and data readily available to students: textual, visual, aural, qualitative, and quantitative. We can give all students the opportunity to participate and contribute – not simply the most talkative and self-confident. "—Source: Inside Higher Ed
WHY THIS MATTERS:
Active engagement is necessary for students to fully connect with course material and have a solid learning experience. While this can be difficult when classes are conducted online, some pedagogical tweaks can help keep everyone involved.
