Good advice needs to be spread

I cannot take credit for this information below today; however, good practices need to be shared with others.

Student Engagement in the Online Classroom” (, this article has great simple tips that work in the online classroom.

·         Start with a good opening.

·         Be first whenever possible

·         Respond to all student queries within 24 hours

·         Be detailed and positive in your comments on their work

·         Respond to all—or nearly all—student discussion postings

·         From the beginning of the course, have ready a link to Frequently Asked Questions

·         Establish an "extra resources" section of your course

·         Require students to pitch in

·         Steer discussion threads in the direction of students' professional needs

·         Offer live chats on a weekly basis

Do you have good practices you wish to share? The more the merrier, because it all helps students!
