Working With Your Students

Are your students browsing the Internet during lecture? Are they drawn to technology and away from your class? Do you feel like giving up? Instead of fighting technology, Professor Moore shows how embracing technology can draw students into a course. As they create course content via wikis and blogs, students take ownership of their own learning. Professor Moore demonstrates these tools, along with the challenges they can pose and ways of addressing them.
