Establishing Instructor Presence in Online Courses


PhD candidate in Learning Technologies at the University of North Texas, Whitney Kilgore (@whitneykilgore), shares how Flipgrid is used in the Massive Open Online Course, HumanMOOC,  to gather insights on how to enhance instructor presence in online courses. 

In her blog about leveraging technology to support teaching and learning, Whitney shares that instructor presence takes three forms, as in teacher, social, and cognitive.  Through her course study, "only 6% noted an increase in their self-efficacy for using social media for teaching and learning while 82% indicated an increase in their self-efficacy regarding using video and audio recording technologies."
