About me


Utilize the resources already available. Try to make the labs as close to F2F as possible.

Simulations are a great way for the students and instructors to evaluate their understanding of the course content. They can also be fun and competitive. 

Asynchronous learning requires a new of thinking about how instructors deliver course content. Making it both fun and educational will require much thought and planning. Both the instructor and student must communicate with each other about how the course design helps obtain the learning outcomes desired. 

I agree that students should determine what type of online environment they will excel in. The VARK and True Colors are excellent tools to assess their learning styles. 

Rubrics are critically important. They provide feedback for the student and help allow the instructor to maintain consistency.

Be aware of your different generations and their learning and technology skills. It is important to understand why a student is taking an online course. 

Rules and guidelines are very important and making certain everyone understands the ground rules. 

Investigate before deciding on what communication tool to use in a course. See what works best for the students.

Accommodations provide equal access. UD is meant to assist in that access.
