Online Educational Resources

There are several apps that colleges and professors are recommending this week due to moving courses online.

  • Doceri – whiteboard software 
  • WebEx – online meeting software
  • Zoom – video creation software 

If you know any other educational apps used for online higher education, then please do share which ones you use to create course content.

One suggestion that I agree with is that we are trying to finish the semester, so don’t panic going crazy to make to make the course perfect. 

Another suggestion is only create short 5 minutes videos because our attention spans are short, especially right now under these quarantined circumstances. Add videos, as a way to reiterate the current week’s presentation. 

Lastly, students need structure even online, so professors need to: 

  • Be consistent in format
  • Be available via email
  • Be interactive via forums
