Humanizing Online Learning with VoiceThread
October 3 at 7:00pm ET – Register here
Creating engaging online courses is not easy. In many courses based on discussion boards, students feel isolated and disconnected from their instructors and classmates. VoiceThread bridges the gaps in social presence typically found in online courses. In this workshop, educators will learn how to establish that social presence and connect with their students using VoiceThread to improve student satisfaction and learning.
Using VoiceThread for Assessments
October 10 at 7:00pm ET – Register here
Are you looking for new ways to assess your student work? If you use written exams and quizzes, this workshop can show you alternative ways to evaluate student learning using VoiceThread. We will discuss strategies for improving student presentations, using comment moderation, and designing portfolios that can replace written exams.
