16 Getting Engaged: How to Reach Today’s Students There’s nothing new about the connection between student engagement and student learning. Educators have been making it for years. What’s changed is the role that technology plays in the classroom. What’s changed is the emergence of virtual learning, both real-time and self-paced. And what’s changed is the students. They’re digital natives – tech savvy, connected, always on – who’ll turn learning off if it’s not deeply engaging. 10 Cool Ways to Engage with Blackboard Collaborate

17 Student Success is Improved Outcomes from instruction using web-conferencing software: – High rates of student participation – correct student responding – high levels of student satisfaction (Hudson, Knight, & Collins, 2012)Hudson, Knight, & Collins, 2012

18 Three Types of Courses: Survey of Online Education (Allen & Seaman, 2014, p. 6)Allen & Seaman, 2014, p. 6 There are three types of courses today Bb Collaborate relates to all three.

19 Enhance Your Face-to-Face Course: Three Ways to Use Collaborate If professors are not lecturing via recorded sessions online: Use a virtual meeting room for: Office hours, brainstorming, course meeting rooms. 2/3rds of that is not recorded lectures.

20 Web-enhanced Courses Foster Student Interaction “Web-enhanced courses – are face-to-face courses that use any form of electronic media to post information, deliver content, provide learning resources, and foster student interaction outside the classroom. – They are not distance education courses, because instruction takes place in the classroom. – Technology is used to support instruction instead of being the main source of course delivery” (“About web-enhanced courses,” 2013)“About web-enhanced courses,” 2013

21 Web-Conferencing Enhances Face-to-Face Courses (Hess, 2013, p. 51)Hess, 2013, p. 51 One way to respond to educational change is thru course design & redesign Maximizes students’ learning Helps ensure courses efficiently/effectively prepare students During the last ten years, a third course design option has emerged in higher education, including legal education—a blended course that combines the face-to-face and online formats.
