An effective online classroom is more than a weekly folder with tasks for a student to complete independently.

What exactly are social presence and cognitive presence? Why do they matter? And how do I incorporate them into my online classroom? This session will answer those questions with evidence supported by the research of D. Randy Garrison and provide practical, easy-to-use tools and practices to incorporate the presence trifecta into your classroom tomorrow.
