Synchronous Online Classes: 10 Tips for Engaging Students

Synchronous Online Classes: 10 Tips for Engaging Students | EduInfo | Scoop.it
So how do you teach in this odd virtual space? How do you keep participants from descending into that peculiar passivity characteristic of conference calls? And how do you help students fight the constant temptation of momentarily clicking away from class? While virtual classes are not without challenges, there are, in fact, concrete steps you can take to run class sessions that are energetic, interactive, and productive.

MFaculty's curator insight, June 28, 6:03 PM
These are some high quality suggestions that can be simply and easily incorporated into your synchronous online class. Having done numerous webinar trainings, a couple of things I would add is 
1) the 60 minutes (or whatever your timeline) will seem to go by very fast once you get feedback from your students; 
2) after you ask a question, it's okay to say something like, "take a minute to think about that" then wait! 

You might only wait for 15 or 30 seconds but the silence is golden! I don't recommend you insert these pauses too often, but once in awhile gives students an opportunity to actually reflect on the question and form a coherent response...don't rush it.

May I also add Present.Me that allows you to attach a video of yourself presenting to your powerpoint presentation. I use it to send to my class when I cannot be there for their lessons. Genuis.
Baiba Svenca's comment, August 3, 2012 12:01 PM
I agree Charlotte! Present.me is awesome, I use it too. And Prezi, and many more tools.... But that was the author's choice. I like the annotations and tips very much!
