Online Orientation: Getting Students to Use It!
Many course developers have built rich orientations to prepare students for a successful online experience. Creating these orientation programs takes a great deal of time and attention, but they are often skipped by students. At LTU, we've surveyed faculty and students about what needs to be included in an effective orientation and found some creative ways to use Adaptive Release functions to increase student participation in our orientation module and make it more relevant to student needs.
