Creating Connections and Engagement

This page addresses three important types of engagement for online courses: learner to content, learner to faculty, and learner to other learners. For the sake of accessibility, the material is presented here as an accordion. Originally, it was designed as a "choice board." If you'd like to see it in that format--perhaps because you're considering ways to provide students some choice within a course--just follow this link (PDF).
