Is it about design or the type of learner?

And the mirror image of this is that the course design and online moderator needs to facilitate this social presence. #CCDFLITE #M_Housetraining

This article is interesting to promote good habits in ourselves and in our students, since working together, there are more chances to learn and enjoy the process of learning. Of course, this is applicable in online courses and face to face class because in both environments, there is the bad habit of behaving like student A. Additionally, the tips are very simple and very useful to put into practice. plan our schedule of classes give us more opportunities to interact with the other people, share information and provide regular feedback.

Even though we have the best of intentions, sometimes we could make a few tweaks to our online courses that would be appreciated by our students, more than we may know.

A great idea: educated people showing compassion, and a shotglass more than the usual amount of daring.  Putting classes online for free, and using them for research to study how learning works, helps everyone.  At the time of this video there were 43 courses available. Hopefully now there's more.
