It is important for the instructor to be active in providing encouraging and helpful feedback to students. Providing adequate feedback encourages student participation.
Instructors must selectively use technologies toward a multipronged approach to facilitating learning outcomes, ensuring along the way that students receive the feedback they need to overcome confusion, better understand objectives and material, and understand their progress in actually learning the material.
Instructors' primary purpose is not to teach but to facilitate learning. Integrally, critical observation can help identify students' disengaging and the immediate need to respond through one-on-one interaction to those who have disengaged in order to identify causes and potential remedies, including through changes to the instructional design.
Students cannot actively engage with material without having a foundation from which to build an understanding; therefore, students must be (passively) provided this foundation then transitioned to a point of actively engaging with it.
Active Learning requires stimulating as many of students' senses as possible while providing opportunities for students to collaborate among themselves, to take time to individually ponder and wrestle with material, and to demonstrate their ability to apply what they have learned to new scenarios.
Posting a biography with your academic credentials, teaching experience, and a photo is a good way to project an online presence and gain students' respect.
