Research 3

This article discusses the challenges of teaching a course online as opposed to in a traditional classroom. A new challenge is presented to the instructor when he/she no longer has control over the learning environment. The article gives ten successful traditional classroom strategies and tells how they can be modified to also be successful in the online learning environment. A key strategy for adult learners is discussion, because it allows them to enhance their critical thinking skills and “explore their own experiences.” Projects are also a key strategy. They allow the students to apply what they learn in a way that interests them.
