What is the most effective way of engaging online students? As online instructors, we use discussion forums, chat, responses, blogs, group activities, debate formats, labs and other means of engaging students in online classes. But what is most effective for different learning environments and circumstances? What do students expect and get out of the different engagements tools and methods? Dick will reflect on the different tools and methods he has used in his online classes. He will share what worked and didn't and how he adjusts to meet the students' learning needs. Participants will share and reflect on what they find effective for their classes.
