Hi I teach on line, and am pleased to be getting positive feedback from my students and enrollment is growing however, I want to know what others are doing to improve the success rate of on-line learners. Keeping students engaged and interested is always a bit of a challenge and part of it relates to the platform being used. I like the idea of using more of the web 2.0 tools but also don't want the students to have to set up 3-4 new accounts just to complete my courses. The drop out rate is aways higher for on-line students than the regular classroom and keeping them actively involved for 20 weeks is a challenge. Many of my students prefer to work independently when they have the chance to work with a partner. So I'm also looking for success tips on group collaboration works with online high school students.
