Effective Use of Collaboration Tools for Online Learning

A session at 9th Annual e-Learning 2.0 Conference

Friday 25th March, 2011

11:00am to 11:50am (EST)

This presentation will demonstrate how to use and incorporate some of the main collaboration tools within Blackboard Classic effectively to increase student engagement and learning. We believe that when an instructor uses these tools in online instruction, he/she creates an environment that fosters not only collaboration but also student interaction and engagement. A learning environment is created where the students are able to learn from one another, develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, and develop an understanding of the content that is being delivered. Thus, collaboration tools provide a means of allowing students to process and transform knowledge that can enrich their online learning experience. Within this presentation we will provide specific examples of best practices using the following collaboration tools within our courses at Goodwin College:
- Wimba Classroom
- Voice boards
- Blogs and Wikis
- Discussion Boards
- Available Mobile Applications
