Engaged Learning is a powerful term in new age education where students take charge of their learning – opting for offline and online courses that help them meet their personal and professional goals.
This engaged learner is passionate about learning and invested in the course. He is able to clearly define and follow learning goals through strategic and creative thinking. However, very often, in online courses, students get demotivated and feels isolated. An online course that is unable to engage the students results in not only demotivated students, but it also leads to high attrition and drop-out rates
To support this new generation of engaged learners, it is essential that we create engaging online courses. One of the most effective ways to do this is to make courses more interesting using course Management software.
Below are a few tips to help you create engaging online courses for your students
Create A Structured Course
Using your course management software like Uzity you can ensure that your management courses are structured with clearly defined learning goals. The online course should offer specific guidelines of the length of the course, goals, estimated workload, assessment rules and expected interactivity levels for the course. This structure not only makes the courses more interesting to the student, but it keeps them motivated and invested in the learning process.
Make Your Course Interactive
Your course management system includes various tools to create engaging online courses and facilitate interactivity. Some of the ways to do are chat forums, blog comments, video chats and discussion boards. This allows students to engage with each other and discuss new concepts and ideas that will keep them engaged with the course. Using quizzes, polls, at the end of lessons is also a great way to keep students interested in your course content and gauge their understanding of the concepts taught at every level of teaching
Stay Connected With Your Learners
With many online courses, the learner can often feel isolated, away from the guidance and company of peers and teachers. Hence it is essential to use the various tool in the course management system to stay connected to the students.
Using the course management system connect with the learners, guide them in their brainstorming sessions, support their research and keep them engaged in the online course.
Another great way to stay connected with the students and make courses more interesting is through regular and timely feedback to the students. While your course management system will ensure that your students have constant feedback through assignments and assessments, you too can make your presence felt, by ensuring that you give immediate feedback to your students. By allowing them to correct errors at the very beginning, you can keep your learners interested and committed to achieving the best from the course.
Using your course management system, you can integrate various technological tools and resources to help your students engage better with the course. From adding gamification tools, includes HD videos, podcasts, etc. you can create a course that appeals to the millennial students.
Creating a digital course for your students can be challenging for teachers and educators who also have other classroom responsibilities to take care of. However, with the right learning management system, you can easily create engaging online courses that motivate your students as well as add value to their lives.
