Session Description:

Creating active learning opportunities in online courses allows students to engage directly with content rather than be passive consumers of it resulting in a more meaningful online learning experience.

This informative 45-minute session will explore how to create engaging story driven content by storyboarding, and use non-linear navigation to engage learners. The session will demonstrate these techniques and highlight some best practices for student-centered design.
