How do you facilitate the relationship between learner and instructor? - Learn how other instructors keep up with the relationships with their learners.

How do you measure the effectiveness of your online teaching methods?- What KPIs do you use to identify the success of your teaching methods.
Course Quality Coffee Chat:
On March 15th, we invited you all to discuss course quality as instructors!
There were a lot of questions and discussions that can be those who want to learn more about course quality.
In case you missed it, we had a couple of questions shared with the instructors to discuss further.
Here are the questions and responses had during the coffee chat:
- What steps have you taken to improve your online course?
- One step to take is to find yourself an excellent editor.
- Utilize some good programs for editing such as Adobe Premier Pro or Camtasia
- Quality also comes when you start to understand the tools that you are using. The more you become familiar with various software programs, the higher quality your courses will be.
- Was there any feedback you received to improve your course quality?
- A big piece of feedback received was to mix things up when you’re presenting your course material
- Keep things entertaining for your students to keep them engaged.
- Make sure that your audio is clear when recording your content. Background noise can be distracting for learners.
