Communicating with students in an online course can be more challenging than traditional, face-to-face courses. Simple and clear communication between students, their peers, and you, the instructor, is fundamental to their success in your course. Weekly agendas at the beginning of the week can help your students stay on task, a review at the end of the week can really tie everything together, and 1-on-1 check-ins can help keep your students engaged with the course.

In this section, you will find tutorials on how to best use the tools available to facilitate communication.
