This paper highlights the need to regard feedback as a process, rather than an end result or reward for hard work. For feedback to have any value, a culture of dialogue between students and instructors is essential. Given the unique context of online learning, we acknowledge the need to identify online learning tools that can be utilized to provide feedback in a number of different ways.
In this paper, the authors explore some of the new collaboration and evaluation tools found in one of the leading learning management systems, Blackboard. The focus of this paper is to encourage instructors to experiment with the use of these tools in traditional, seated and online classes. With the expansion of hybrid classes which meld online and seated components, the authors felt it pertinent to point out that these tools can be used in a variety of instructional settings.
As a whole, the online programs within the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) are receiving recognition as highly valued programs among peer institutions across the United States.Presenting effective strategies for growing and marketing online programs is the focus of this paper. The authors recognize that the best practices, materials, and resources set forth here are not intended to be all inclusive and that across the system no one strategy will fit every institution.
