Transcript of Common Challenges video

  • Frequent and concise communication with students is critical in a remote environment.
  • Being ‘seen’ online is important when there is no opportunity for face-to-face interaction.
  • Learning is often social, so encouraging virtual communities of learning can strengthen motivation and break isolation.
  • Everything takes longer and more effort online. Students will need more time or a greater amount of energy to manage demanding self-management skills and stay cognitively focused.
  • Content delivery may need to be adapted to formats better suited for remote learning. You may need to make choices about the amount of content or number of activities, or making some of it optional.
  • The learning environment needs to provide structure and a consistent navigation experience for students to navigate your course with ease
  • In the end, aim to deliver your courses remotely in a manner that creates a satisfying experience for you and your students.
  • Seek student feedback early on to know what works well and what could be enhanced
