Transforming Online Course Design for Meaningful Student Engagement
Students’ motivation and engagement are two critical components of a strong learning community. As classes are now held online, it is much harder to maintain close connection with students and keep them engaged in the lessons. Educators are trying their best to create interactive learning experiences, yet they need the proper equipment. This presentation aims to highlight our solution to overcome this problem and help teachers create engaging online courses. FeedbackFruits has been building a LMS-integrated tool suite that encompasses a range of learning activities within pedagogical themes such as: self & peer assessment, online discussion and team-based learning. These tools are designed to increase students’ engagement and learning efficiency while saving instructors a considerable amount of time to focus on actual teaching and be able to track their students' learning progress closely.
