Online Retention Tips
From the Online Retention Faculty Inquiry Group.

Tips to Encourage Student Participation:
-Require students to add links to relevant / interesting sources

-Make students teachers: Assign "teaching" modules

-Allow or require students to make videos for posting to the course.

-Ask students to teach others in their circle of family and friends; start with a short "quiz" or survey they can administer with something that is a common misconception or something that might be controversial, and then have the students explain the correct (or informed) answers, and relate in their assignment to you what THEY learned by being the teacher to their friends.

-Ask students to find a great YouTube video that helped them to understand a concept, and post a link to it (properly formatted as a bibliographic entry, of course!).
