This workshop will demonstrate technology tools that can be used to promote student-to-student and student-to-instructor connections in a remote learning environment. The session will cover the “why” of using a tool and follow with a demonstration of its use in Blackboard from both the instructor and student perspective. At the conclusion of the session, faculty will be provided with a resource guide to help them choose and implement the tools that will help foster connections in their online course.
