The sense of instructor presence is created through a tool called, Video Note. Using Video Note allows you to create this sense of presence to your Blended and Online students. Little things mean a lot. A weekly message about what is going to be covered during the week is one way or giving accolades to a student or group that gives that added touch that tells the student(s) you are there for them.
Video Note is available anywhere you see “Insert Stuff” icon. Insert Stuff is located in several locations: Announcements, Discussions, Dropbox (creating and/or recorded feedback), Grades (feedback), Groups, and Quizzes/Tests. Using your webcam, insert a short Video Note to the students.
Leave a three minute video that students will recognize as a plus. Watch for their reaction and let us know how it goes so we can share that with all the faculty. And, Video Note works on all mobile devices!
