    Strategies for Online Practitioners

    Table of Contents

    When teaching online, many instructors utilize videoconferencing tools to improve social presence, connection, and to offer an approximation of an in-class experience. However, many instructors and students have recognized that video conferencing has limitations. Asynchronous video can help address several of the challenges that instructors and students encounter in videoconferencing, while preserving some of the benefits, such as a richer, more personal experience and enhanced social presence. But what are the most effective strategies for using asynchronous video?

    This book encapsulates lessons learned from our own research and teaching using asynchronous video tools, previously published in a popular Educause Review series of articles. In this book, we'll review the reasons why asynchronous video should be an important tool in an online teacher's toolbox, and discuss practical strategies for integrating these tools into your teaching.

    This material was written with the support of EdConnect and previously published in a series of articles in Educause Review.
