Hello everyone. So interesting news: I started teaching a course here at Penn State online and it has been an interesting experience. The course is asynchronous and the students basically have a list of homework assignments to complete each week including readings, videos, Powerpoints, and blog posts. The trick here is the onus is heavily on the student. However, the blog feature is one way I am experimenting with trying to create a sense of social presence in the course so the students feel connected with each other and can generate class conversation. So far so good and I will be sure to give updates on progress.
