10 Chat

  1. 1. TIPS AND TRICKS Online Learning 10 Things to Remember When Using Chat • Enter the Chat Room at least 5 minutes before your scheduled Office Hours are to begin. • Type a quick “I’m in” to let your students know you’re online. Do not greet everyone personally as they join in or bid farewell when they leave. • Do not respond to every comment unless it’s specifically addressed to you or if the discussion is proceeding down a wrong path. • Keep the conversations on point and class-related. Encourage students to use Chat to develop peer-peer relationships (and to spark other conversations) outside of your Office Hours. • Remember that all Chats other than Private Chats are viewable to the public and can be viewed in Chat Transcripts. • The expectation may not be to apply MLA, APA etc. standards, let your students know they should be aware of correct spelling and grammatical errors while communicating through Chat. • Use your Chat Room to spark brainstorming sessions. Enter an idea about the week’s topic and encourage dialogue between students. • Engage “quiet” students by typing questions directly to the individual(s). • Prepare participants for the next session by announcing the topic before ending your current Chat session • Review the Chat Transcripts or your notes and follow-up with any students who had questions or misunderstandings.
