Online courses, blended courses, and even traditional large classroom-based courses are often equated with anonymity and distance among student colleagues and between students and faculty. However, the appropriate use of social media and communication tools can foster the creation of a thriving classroom community. This, in turn, can encourage more meaningful online dialogue and group problem-solving. Professor John Boyer and Katie Pritchard will demonstrate the tools and techniques used to build a vibrant learning community. They will discuss the challenges and lessons learned and explore how their approach can be extended to other types of classes.
