Designing Online Learning Experiences

Learning online looks different than learning in a traditional classroom, and it comes with its own unique opportunities and challenges. Selecting the right tools and giving students voice and choice over their learning not only improves learning, but it keeps students engaged while working remotely or online.

This course helps educators incorporate student agency and autonomy into online lessons, as well as design and facilitate effective, engaging and impactful content and lessons for a digital or blended classroom.
