Communication Strategies for online education
Wednesday morning – Karen Watson, Fort Valley State University
Orientation: Beginning of the year they use collaborate to have university leaders get together and introduce students to the new semester. Was hard to get the admins to participate.
=> Maybe we could do the same thing but with deans?
=> We could augment the developing a tech orientation for new faculty with a series of collaborate sessions!
Faculty use Collaborate for office hours.
They have a Collaborate help desk for students and another for faculty.
=> We can offer Collaborate help sessions for faculty by appointment.
They use Connect to send student systems messages, emergency messages, reminders about the closing of add classes . . .
Random thoughts, people – the actual session was much more detailed. See Watson for more information!
