Today I’m excited to be participating in a MOOC, or Massive Open Online Course that is free. Today’s MOOC is part of Chris Long’s University of California Irvine’s course, Advanced Instructional Strategies in the Virtual Classroom. I will be sharing some powerful strategies for increasing students’ engagement in learning using ThingLink and ThingLink for Video.
