How to Use Interaction to Drive Engagement and Learning Outcomes

All learners crave interaction, whether in face-to-face settings or in online environments, and research shows that interaction can increase learning and lessen the psychological distance involved in online learning.  

Designing and implementing interactive online learning experiences often requires strategic planning.  We’ll look at setting outcomes, provide questions to review current course design and explore options for increasing engagement through interaction.

This 30-minutes Master Class will explore ways to increase interaction between learners and their instructors, content and other learners using course design, features and blocks in Moodle and Totara Learn.


During the presentation, two handouts that would be handy for you all to have were mentioned! We have them linked them in here for your reference:
