A strong community has a shared identity, trust amongst members and strength through communal developments, and shared good practice. Harnessing the power of community in an online learning environment would give you the benefits of a supportive and collegiate cohort of learners who will enhance your instruction by supporting each other.
The Teaching Online: an inclusive community approach course will explore the meaning of community and how the community can be developed online. You will also evaluate the tools needed to create and sustain an online community before exploring how to engage student learning.
This course will take you approximately 5 hours to complete. A learner who explores the material in more depth will take approximately 6 hours and a learner who skims the course content will take 3 hours.
