How to make online classes experiential in the same way face-to-face classes can be? How to create lively, interesting discussions that relate to current developments in our disciplines.
When the Nobel prize winners are announced, many of us enter class and discuss the poet or the scientists work with students. Using online audio/video clip posts, this sort of experience can be simulated! You post a clip, then encourage students to listen and respond in a discussion or chat room.
Interest Links are audio or video curriculum connections that dont add more reading to an online class.
A Useful Math Site
Direct students to NPR sites like this one where weird 19 th Century climate is shown to have affected Frankenstein!
- Using the Print Screen option on your computer keyboard, you can paste a screen image into your online delivery system. Either hyperlink it, or paste the web address there for students to find.
Interest Links add flavor and fun to the sometimes dull work of an online class. These are easy to implement and useful for addressing various learning styles and course contents. Thanks for attending!
