28 Days of OLLIE: Day 18

As we wrap up days 15, 16, and 17, we hope that you got some great ideas on how to use video in your online or blended instruction. Please remember that if you have more questions about how to use video with students or create videos, you can post your questions in the community forum found here.
Day 18-20
As we look towards days 18, 19, and 20 we will be focusing on "Setting Students up for Success". As facilitators or online or blended learning there are lots of things that we can do to help students be successful and the best news is that most of these supports are fairly simple/easy to do.
ScenarioMrs. Roberts blended her math course during first semester, however she has hit a few bumps with students. In her face to face classes is able to naturally develop a sense of classroom community with her students. This community leads to a connectivity among and between her and her students that sets them up for success. Unfortunately, in her online course she just doesn't feel as if that same level of community has been established.
This has led to all sorts of issues. Several students have missed important deadlines. While others have failed to respond to questions or make changes to work after receiving feedback.
Frustrated she has posted in the OLLIE forum here. She is hoping that the community members will have some ideas about to help her build community among and between her students and set them up to be successful online learners.

To Do
