10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses | eLearning | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course. It's no surprise then that drop out rates for online learning courses have been so high.


The advent of Web 2.0 though, brought a whole bunch of new tools that course designers could take advantage of to make content more social, interactive and engaging.

Here are some of the tools I've been using recently to embed a bit more interactivity into the courses I work on.

Engaging students is challenging. Using technology assists in learning.

i found this link very interesting since online courses can be so dry and drab. I have taken an online course before and wanted to know how to increase my own engagement let alone other students.
