#1 – Make participatory learning expectations clear.
|Students may think online means working only from home.||Manage student expectations by explaining what you expect them to do at home and in class.|
|Students may be reluctant to take responsibility for their learning.||Explain early and often what is expected and how it is beneficial to them.|
|Students may lack time management skills.||Provide time for completion, and divide work into bite-sized modules.|
|Technology can become an obstacle for some students.||Avoid high-risk technologies.|
Identify technology requirements for the course and model technology use before making online assignments.
Rely on a learning management system (e.g. MS Classroom) and invite students to set up a “technical helpdesk.”
|Students may watch videos or content, but not be sure how to share what they have learned.||Take advantage of MS Forms to create web-based quizzes that work across multiple devices, as well as graphic organizers that can be filled out using OneNote drawing tools.|
#2 – Create a digital textbook for student reference.
#3 – Clarify grading overview.
#4 – Set up an online presence to share instructional resources.
#5 – Select a screencasting tool to record instructional videos.
