Activity A: Create a Proof-of-Concept Community for Your Class

  • Create an Online Learning Community you might use with your students. Include elements you think might be helpful and give some thought to how the layout and design might best support student learning. (If you actually use this, it will almost certainly evolve.)
  • Post a link to your new Online Learning Community below:
