Creating Mobile Application-Optimized Courses
As mobile devices become more prevalent in society, it’s important to consider how they can be used in the online classroom. Mobile technology provides opportunities to supplement and complement desktop usage, giving users the option to access content on a mobile device if they choose. This talk will explore how to take advantage of mobile technology in your courses.
Mobile devices offer a wealth of tools that can be employed in courses, such as podcasts, Google Drive, GPS scavenger hunts, and other mobile-friendly apps. Utilizing these tools in your courses encourages students to engage with contemporary technology in a way that is familiar to them.
Make your course interactive! Students will see your course as a more engaging place to learn if they receive app notifications for events such as new tests or grades. Ask for short, but more frequent submissions from students to check in on their progress and understanding.
