I do believe that the holistic approach to students' success, in general, is necessary. It's important to get our students' voice and input before we throw a course together.
I definitely agree. I think too often we design solutions without student input.
Students must be part of the process in order to ensure that we offer content that meets their needs and in the format that is the easiest to access.
I will use the tips for my fye course. Especially to encourage students about time blocking.
A colleague and I were just having a conversation, yesterday, about brainstorming effective tools that could be used to better support our online students. Thank you for this preview.
Are there specific components for math courses? It has been my experience as both instructor and online student that those who are unsuccessful tend to skip online lectures and/or discussions to just try to get the homework done. Invariably that does not lead to passing exams. (And with all the "help" available on the internet, anyone can complete most HW just by using an app.)
Online interesting discussion topics are keys to engage students.
Is the platform considered to be the "discussion board"?
Not sure exactly what you mean.
We apologize for the delay. We do have some specific workshops that deal with math anxiety. You can find them listed here - https://www.innovativeeducators.org/products/studentlingo-subscription
The skills to motivate the Online learning groups is interesting. I hope to see of those issues that enlighten our vision and enhance our online learning classes in the distance education format.
