QM Standard 5 – Course Activities and Learner Interaction
Course activities should facilitate and support student interaction and engagement. Learning activities should support active learning, as well as student-to-student and instructor-to-student interactions. Connecting activities to the real world drives student interest, engagement and retention. The expectation for student participation and interaction should be clearly explained. Feedback should be personal and timely.
There are a number of tools in Blackboard you can use for course activities and learner interactions. How do you know which tool is right for you? Use the information in the Pick the Right Tool for the Job blog post for guidance.
