    1. 1. Personalize that Online Course Presented by Ruth Alsobrook-Hurich Instructional Technology Specialist Adjunct Instructor Yavapai College Prescott, Arizona
    2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>When teaching in an online environment, there is no reason why you cannot add your physical self to the course! </li></ul><ul><li>It’s very simple to do; and can provide great comfort to your students. </li></ul><ul><li>By using, images, audio and video, you can bring your world into the “digital” campus. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Welcoming <ul><li>The best starter for an online course is a Welcome Letter. This letter can be sent to the class just before the start of the semester. It should contain steps on how to login, links to extra software needed, the textbook title and ISBN, virtual office hours and contact information. </li></ul><ul><li>This small act can make students feel excited about the course. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Images <ul><li>Within the course, a simple image of yourself, your family, your pet, or your interests with slight descriptions, is a great step in showing your online students that you are human. </li></ul><ul><li>Students may feel an instant connection from reading about you and your life! </li></ul>
    5. 5. Video <ul><li>Take images one step further and use your FREE movie software; add a narrative and some music and you have a full-fledged movie of yourself for students to view! </li></ul><ul><li>With the increase of fast paced lives, five minute videos can bring a lot of information to the forefront. </li></ul>
    6. 6. Virtual Office Hours <ul><li>Office hours can even be created with free applications. </li></ul><ul><li>For basic chats, try Meebo. This application can be used one on one or a complete classroom chat. </li></ul><ul><li>There are other, advanced (some free), screen-sharing application which work if you need to share the computer screen. </li></ul><ul><li>Be creative and add a virtual environment such as Second Life into the mix of Office Hours. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Screen Recordings <ul><li>For grading or reviewing assignments, why not try a screen recording software to share your thoughts as you view the work. </li></ul><ul><li>Jing is free and can record up to five minutes. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s affordable sister is Camtasia, which will allow even more opportunities with a recording (such as adding music). </li></ul>
    8. 8. Let’s look at simple ways to add “you” to the online class:
    9. 9. Welcoming <ul><li>A Welcome Letter can be embedded into your course for reading at anytime. </li></ul><ul><li>Create a “Your Instructor” area with information about yourself and add the Welcome Letter here. </li></ul><ul><li>Add a Link to a Blog or Wiki which has more information on the class and/or you…as well as the Welcome Letter. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Images <ul><li>Images should be stored on a Network Drive or a Website. Once this is completed, images can be “embedded” or “linked” into the Learning Management Software (LMS) to reduce total class file size! </li></ul><ul><li>Clipart, photos and animated gifs can bring a whole new look to that tired lecture. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Video <ul><li>With video, students can see and hear the information provided. </li></ul><ul><li>As with images, store these on a server or website. </li></ul><ul><li>Embed or link to the video for smaller class file size. </li></ul><ul><li>Simple quick announcements can be recorded with YouTube to give students updates and/or ideas for the up and coming week. </li></ul>
    12. 12. Virtual Office Hours <ul><li>Virtual Office hours allow students an opportunity to ask specific questions. </li></ul><ul><li>These “offices” can be one on one or open classroom chats. </li></ul><ul><li>These chats can be embedded into your LMS or linked to external webpages . </li></ul>
    13. 13. Screen Recordings <ul><li>Screen recordings are great for tutorials or lectures. </li></ul><ul><li>By providing that visual and auditory information all at once, students can retain more . </li></ul><ul><li>If archived, the stop and pause action can be used to apply kinesthetic learning. </li></ul>
    14. 14. How do you add all of this into the online class? also known as: What the HTML?!

Remove these and you’ll be fine. Or try placing the code within a table cell or in between <object> </object>. </li></ul>
