Humanizing Online Instruction

From KCTCS's Instructional Designer, Elizabeth Dalton:

There is a MOOC that will run March 9 – April 7th that focused on teaching online: Humanizing Online Instruction – The #HumanMOOC

I participated in this last spring and did pick up a few new ideas. It focuses on the Community of Inquiry Model. This model is all about how social presence, teaching presence and cognitive presence (interaction with course content and materials) interact to create a deep learning experience.

Pass along to anyone looking for further ideas in being a great online instructor.
