First impressions really do count, and the first ten minutes a student is in your online course can make or break their experience. Designing your course with the needs of diverse students in mind allows you to hit just the right note for that crucial first “introduction” and build intuitive elements that support each student’s success.
You’ll discover the power of three important “tens” in your students’ interaction in the course–the first 10 minutes, the first 10 hours, and the first 10 days. You’ll leave with strategies to authentically welcome students, design impactful home pages and syllabi, and create compelling activities that help your students form a meaningful learning community.
Are you looking for the secret sauce to build community and foster meaningful student-student interactions? Well, the secret is YOU! Research shows that online students are more invested in a class when they have an instructor who cares about their learning success. But conveying your human presence, empathy, and awareness in online requires intention and a toolkit of tools and practices.
In this webinar, you will be introduced to the principles of humanizing and learn how to use Adobe Video Spark, a free tool, to bring your warm, human presence into your online class.
