We begin Unit 1 by exploring how building community enables success in online learning. We will use your introductions and reflections on past learning experiences as a means of learning about each other and building our online community.
We will see where energy and leadership emerge within our community as we construct a video together. And, we will examine the factors that support and sustain online learning communities.
Finally, the stage will be set this week for the learning activities you will be facilitating and participating in during the remainder of the units. This activity is introduced in this unit so that you will have a clear picture of what is coming and will have time to prepare for your mini-facilitation session and for your role as a participant in the the various learning activities.
