To tap into learners’ variable interests, provide appropriate levels of challenge, and increase motivation—you need to build and maintain a community of learners. Creating a sense of belonging is even more important for the online environment. Want to re-develop student engagements as well as design and sustain your community of learners in the online environment using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles? Motivate and engage your students in Quercus using these key strategies:
• Optimizing relevance and authenticity with personalization (e.g., like Home Page).
• Promoting collaborative content development (e.g., with editable ‘wiki’ Pages).
• Using Discussions for active participation, exploration and experimentation.
• Supporting learning with student-generated questions in Quizzical (and other integrated tools).
• Fostering collaboration through Groups.
