Cognitive engagement is important to student success in any learning environment. ... Engaging students in a meaningful, relevant fashion is difficult regardless of whether a course is face to face or online. The challenge for online instructors lies in transferring and adapting teaching strategies that are effective in the face-to-face classroom to be relevant for fostering student engagement in the online classroom. In essence, the greatest barriers are perceived limitations in what instructors can do in the faceless, physically isolated environment of online learning."

A Must See Visual Featuring The 5 Levels of Student Engagement ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Student Engagement | Scoop.it

"After posting about the "10 ways to get your students engaged" here is another good visual I learned about from Mindshift and which outlines different levels of engagement. As I have already  argued elsewhere here in this blog, getting today's students deeply engaged (the first level of engagement below) in the learning experience taking place in class is not an easy task. Unless students see a direct relevance between  what they are going to learn and how that information will help them them in their actual life , it becomes hard to hook and maintain their attention. Proponents of socio-cultural linguistics emphasize the importance of "context" in learning. Learning materials that are contextualized and tailored to speak to the immediate context of the learners are more likely to get students engaged and hence increase their rate of retention and comprehensibility."
