Build More Collaboration into Your Online Class | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"This summer I’ll be teaching my first fully online course. As you might remember from a previous post I wrote on using team-based inquiry, I really like creating opportunities for students to collaborate and support each other’s learning process.
