Addressing the Elephant in the Online Classroom: Artificial Intelligence Content Generators

I really would have liked to see an updated discussion about how to handle not only traditional forms of plagiarism, such as copying previously published work, but also advice on how best to respond to newer forms of academic dishonesty relating to the incursion of AI-generated content into the classroom. This is a new, but vitally important area for discussion and debate within the academic community as the technology advances almost daily at this point, an instructors will need to have resources and a plan for addressing the inevitable question of whether any of these new technologies should have a… >>>

What does distant learning mean to you?

What Distant learning to me is the act of taking a course online with a professor that maybe in another state where my lectures and assignments are posted, and discussion are posted for the purpose of interacting with other students. 


Good Morning

Social Interaction

I found all areas to be interesting and helpful. I liked the social interaction.


I have found that students become more involved if you can show that it material is relevant to the student and their daily living or education. It reminds me of the movie "Peggy Sue Got Married." She is transported back to her high school days. She is in her seat in her Algebra class and painting her nails and not paying attention.

Spanish dominant student population.

What are some tips you can use to improve  your communication and online teaching to students that are Spanish dominant?

The un-engaged student

How can we better reach students who, under all circumstances, never seem to want to engage in online learning?  How do we appeal to the 'YouTube' and 'TicTok' generation that wants a faster, more entertaining way of getting information that deem as useful?

Would like to see more games in other languages

There are not many games for the Spanish speaking leaner.

Social Media and Interactive Apps to Ignite Engagement

I teach in the Early Childhood Department and have recently started encouraging students to think outside of the typical question and answer verbal responses by encouraging the use of social media and interactive apps for ticket out discussions. I would love suggestions from others using this format.

Best Teaching Strategy Question

The students vary in age from 19-35 and I can see differences in work ethic and in the ability of the older students to remain focused.

Gaming and Simulation in the classroom: a help or a hinderance?

Gaming and Simulation can have a positive impact with regards to achieving specific learning objectives. Three learning outcomes focus on: cognitive, behavioral, and affective learning. The main barriers are Prep time, Poor fit for subject content, and lack of information. Over time these barriers should lessen as more options and information becomes available.

Incorporating prior knowledge (PK)

Do you have suggestions for the best way to gather data on PK (for online training, not for school based eLearning)? Have you tried incorporating it into trainings? If so, what worked best for you?

factores que mejoran la retención

indudablemente que todas las personas queremos permanecer en aquel lugar donde nos valoran como individuos, nos entienden nuestras necesidades y limitaciones y nos apoyan para poder mantenernos dentro de un proceso, en este caso se trata del proceso enseñanza - aprendizaje,  en linea.

 Todos los estudiantes están esperando equipos de atención personalizada en el menor tiempo posible, por esa razón es de vital importancia que ademas de las herramientas tecnológicas adecuadas, se tenga personal altamente capacitado tanto en el area docente como de soporte administrativo que sea sensible a las necesidades de cada estudiante.

How can the response time and quality of the responses raised by the students be improved? Are there any standards or criteria to consider in order to implement it as a regulation?

I feel that this is one of the aspects in which the timely and effective response must be worked on, it can be one of the fundamental factors to improve the level of retention in our classes.
