  9. 9. Our Tips for beginning online instruction: Final Points• Keep it simple in the beginning. Don’t overwhelm yourself or students with too many changes or too many technical challenges.• Teach the course once with an open mind. Evaluate activities for opportunities to improve. Only employ technology to IMPROVE your course.• Think out of the box. – There are things that the Internet can provide that a closed classroom could not. – Repurpose tools that you are familiar with or can learn easily. Low tech can be highly purposeful.• Maximize the features of the Learning Management System. (secure with limited features) – Discussions, – Pictures in profiles, – embed some Youtube videos from experts – use “Team” controls – Reflective journaling – Peer-review discussions and drop boxes• Be aware of privacy settings on Internet tools. Many technology enhancements that we spoke about MAY be public (open to the Internet world) so be aware of the tool’s settings and be sure students are informed as well.• Never use technology just for the flash and sparkle, this will frustrate students and impede good learning• You can learn from your students. Don’t think YOU have to be the creative one. Leave choices open to students to create projects using a tool of their choice. Possibly provide them with a suggestion list.
  10. 10. Final PointsEasy tools to start with:• Blogs – one of the easiest tools to learn for you or students. (Blogspot.com) – Have student teams create an informational blog. – Collect student experiences/stories, responses to key issues, or – Role-play (limited) – Create a collective document (limited) for a target audience• Polls/surveys – zoomerang.com – highlight key learning points – reinforce previous learning – collect feedback – Peer-review• Voicethread.com – have a conversation around media – You can create three for free• Sliderocket.com – interactive PowerPoint• Animoto.com – images and music (limited features in free version)
