Her use of VoiceThread presentations for lectures combined with Screencast-o-matic and other screen capture tools to provide a walkthrough of her online syllabus, course tools, and to provide a tutorial on “how to calculate your final grade” provides guidance to new and returning online learners. Her approach ensures students are aware of the course expectations and outcomes and have the skills they need to succeed in the online classroom.
