Tips to conduct online classes


Best tips that will help you learn how to make lessons fun and engaging in an online classroom

The past few days have seen increasing numbers of schools announced that they are moving to conduct online Classes only. Every teacher is busy working to move their face-to-face lessons online. Designing online classes takes significant time and effort. Here are few tips for them.

Find new engagement indicators.- Classroom teachers have traditionally been able to capture a quick measure of student engagement by just looking at their faces. Are they curious, interested or passionate about class activities? While you may still be able to measure engagement visually during video-oriented synchronous online sessions, classes this fall will have many more scenarios where this won’t be possible. Much of the work students will be doing won’t be on camera, so educators may need to find new indicators of engagement.

Here are a few engagement measures to consider: Are students logging on often? Are they submitting their work on time? Are they reacting to the learning in some way, by asking question and seeking additional resources? Are they responding to feedback and is their voice apparent in classroom forums and boards? These are all indicators of how well a student is connecting with class topics.

Flexible class design offers:

Learner Choice: Provide meaningful alternative participation modes and enable students to choose between participation modes daily, weekly, or topically.

Equivalency: Provide learning activities in all participation modes which lead to equivalent learning outcomes.      

Reusability: Utilize artifacts from learning activities in each participation mode as “learning objects’ for all students.                      

Accessibility: Equip students with technology skills and equitable access to all participation modes.”

As much as we want to meet their needs educationally, we can’t if they are distracted by their need to feel safe.

Meet the Social Emotional need of your learner-- Set clear parameters for where / how students can ask questions or express their concerns such as a message to the teacher or a message board that is only on while the teacher is monitoring. Let students see your face when possible, such as through a good morning video. Create routines with clear expectations so students can feel successful.
