9 Tips on How to Conduct Your Online Teaching Experience

#1: Record the Lesson

It’s best to record your lessons in case any one of your students are not able to attend due to a home emergency or sickness. Giving them the option to access your lessons at a later time is valuable.

#2: Teach with Visuals

With lessons now being taught through slideshows, you can use fun animation, imagery, audio and videos to keep your class engaged (especially the little ones)! As you’re not physically there to guide your students, they may have a tendency to lose focus. Hence, it would be a good idea to show your face every now and again as research shows that a familiar face commands attention.

#3: Get Organized

There are many online tools and websites, such as Blackboard, that you can use to organize your reading materials, allocate homework and set up quizzes! It’s the easiest way to stay organized.

#4: Keep Lessons Short

There are many things that can lead to distractions at home. Keep your lessons short and compact to ensure your students stay attentive.

#5: Identify Struggling Students

Some students may struggle in a new learning environment. Always monitor those students and have a one-to-one session with them if required. Find out what they’re struggling with and provide solutions to those problems.

#6: Check Students Who Aren’t Paying Attention

Make sure students are paying attention in class by periodically calling their names and asking questions. Fun activities and tasks are also a great way to keep students tuned in!

#7: Encourage Social Community

You can encourage your students to enter the group chat 15 minutes before a lesson to socialize with their classmates, which creates a positive social environment. They can talk to each other, discuss homework, and the added advantage is they won’t be late for class!

#8: Keep Your Availability

Set aside 1-2 hours a day for your students so they can set up meetings with you to discuss homework and school-related issues.

#9: Invest or Request for Good Equipment

It’s important to give your students the best learning experience at home, so do request or invest in good digital equipment such as webcams, microphones and speakers. If they aren’t in good working condition, you may encounter some difficulties or technical glitches which could disrupt the lesson.
