Using FlipGrid to Create Presence In An Online Class: Cognitive, Social, & Instructor
Dave Hallmon, Instructor, Math/Computer Science Dept.
The new online course, GLBC 1210: Gateway Seminar to the Global Citizenship Program, has been able to pilot the use of FlipGrid, a unique video discussion platform that offers innovative design and even more functionality than what is currently offered in Canvas. After the completion of the pilot there has been an estimated 25 hours of engagement between students through video.
Of the 14 students in the class who have participated in 21 video threads in the course, there have been 185 video responses and 36 video replies. The 221 total videos (responses/replies by students) have been viewed 959 times by students.
This presentation will discuss these learning analytics, demo the use of FlipGrid, showcase some student responses/replies, and consider the promotion of active learning. The three types of “presence” in an online course will also be discussed, e.g., social, cognitive, and instructor.
