Tips for Online Classrooms

This is a pretty go list of tips for online educators.  It says you should start with sending our something in advance to help focus the class.  In class it says start with banter (I ask for activities my students have done recently), go to "housekeeping" and then get to the class and let students go into chat rooms as part of the class.  There are other tips online such as this, this, this and, this one that has 147 tips.

So for example last night my students started with the discussion as president of persuader so I sent out this Vox article beforehand.  Then we started with a discussion of what they did over our snow break and then we went over some of our midterm and finally went into the article (about 10 minutes into our hour) and my questions and activities for my students.
