It is not always easy to develop a sense of community and involvement in an online environment. Creativity and a broad knowledge of various online tools can help to overcome this student engagement piece that is often more readily developed in the face-to-face world. This session will help all instructors and course designers broaden their repertoire of tools that can be used for content delivery and/or methods for completing student assignments. A variety of free online resources suitable for inclusion in D2L, easy to integrate into instructional modules, and exciting for students to manipulate will be demonstrated. Tools and examples of how they can be employed to lead to increased student engagement will be the focus of the session.
