Live Online classes through video conferencing is way different from what you teach in person. These facilitate interaction with students from anywhere in the world. What it requires is a good internet connection. There are numerous factors to be kept in mind while you teach online. A few of them are listed below.
Teach Live Online Tips
Following are a few important tips to teach live online:
Prepare Links to your Content
The teachers should prepare links to the study material and share it with the students before the class begins. The students can go through the content before the class and can also revisit the content if required later.
Use technology to interact with the students
The teachers can use technology to interact with the students, know their views, and respond to their queries. The chatbox and polls can be used to respond to the questions of the students and also know their answers. These tools work well for the introvert one’s who are reluctant to participate in a class of so many students.
Engage the Students
It is difficult to engage the students when teaching online. The teachers can include creative ways to make the lesson entertaining and engaging. For eg., the teachers can ask specific questions during the registration process that will keep the students engaged and develop an interest in undertaking a specific course.
One should set certain norms during their online classes such as asking the students to keep their audios and videos on throughout the class or share the screens anytime during the class. The students will thus try and be more alert during the class.
Since the students are connected with the internet, ask the students to explore topics, events and answers not provided in the textbook. Award the winners with a few credits or points as a token of motivation.
Live online classes are one of the easiest, cost-effective, and time-consuming ways of teaching from the comfort of your home. This facilitates one-on-one interaction with the students and enables the teachers to pay attention on each and every student. Also, the chatbots are an advantage to the students who feel reluctant to participate with all the other students in the class. Practicing live online teaching following a few above-mentioned tips can help you impart your knowledge to the students in a better way.
