Next-Generation Technology Impacts on Quality in Online Learning
Free, Fun and Friendly - Exploring Tools to Increase Active Learning and Create Community
Ann Musgrove, Assistant Professor, Florida Atlantic University
I am an Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology in the Department of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education at Florida Atlantic University. I frequently facilitate the online version of the QM workshops "Applying the Quality Matters Rubric", "Teaching Online: An Introduction to Online Delivery" and "Peer Review Certification".
This poster will explore tools that can be used to increase active learning and create community in online courses. These tools support Standards 1.8 and 1.9 as the instructor and students introduce themselves. Also discussed will be that potential use of many of these free tools to support Standard 5.2 - "Learning activities provide opportunities for interactions that support active learning" -- and Standard 6.5 - "Links are provided to privacy policies for all external tools required in the course." The importance and use of transcripts for all multimedia elements will be addressed.
