    W3: Teaching & Learning in a Live Virtual Classroom
    People do not need to travel to reach a class or to learn from an expert. They can set a time and learn together in an online virtual classroom. Participants, who are unable to access the virtual class, can watch the video recordings of the class. Learning is becoming more and more engaging as teachers and students meet online in live virtual classrooms. The virtual classroom is suitable for teamwork, professional development, and for audio and video recording for students in the flipped classroom. Virtual classes have a whiteboard, writing tools, media sharing, audio and video speaking tools, a chat box for texting, breakout rooms, polls, & screen sharing features. Participants can share images, audio, video, PDF, Word, and other files through the class library or directly from their desktops. PowerPoint presentations may include full animations. The information in the chat box can be copied and saved throughout the class for later use.

    W2: How To Engage the Distance Learner
    Have you struggled with engagement in your distance classes? Are you interested in learning about new tools and techniques that you can use in your class to engage those students who you never meet face-to-face? If so this workshop is for you. I have been a distance instructor for 10 years and have strived to use new techniques to engage my learners. Techniques that I will talk about in this workshop, are not limited, but will include: group projects using wiki tools, avatar video creations using Xtranormal software, office hour Jeopardy time using chat rooms, and the art of using traditional teaching strategies in the new virtual classroom. The workshop will include times for general discussion where teaching achievements and stories can be shared. Bring your laptop and you can design an avatar movie and we can create a group wiki. In this workshop you will be actively involved with thinking about what is working and not working in your distance classroom.
