ONLINE TEACHING – TOOLS & STRATEGIES
Facilitating an online teaching amongst today’s learners requires an educator to be innovative and creative and to have an effective online existence. In the current online learning environment (otherwise called e-learning), keeping learners insightfully connected with and motivated while alloting the necessary course content requires educators empowering a protected, non-judgmental environment whereby perspectives, points of view, and individual and expert experiences are encouraged. The educator must exhibit a learner centred learning process, where students are held answerable for their active participation and self-directed learning while balancing a facilitator role to further upgrade the learning interaction. This article investigates one teacher's intelligent practice measure that has been created over various years as an early adopter of online education. It will explore the organizational aspect of teaching-facilitating a dynamic robust online course.
