How to use this Repository by Time (Asynchronous or Synchronous)
- Asynchronous instruction is not time dependent. For example, you can have students submit an assignment and then provide feedback at a later date. Here are more examples of asynchronous activities.
- Synchronous or live instruction requires interaction at the same time. An example is a live presentation. Here are more examples of synchronous (live) activities.
You can run a fully online course using only asynchronous instruction. Traditionally, not-in-person instruction has been run asynchronously.
Please select an activity. You can modify and use one in your course.
Students Answer and Ask Questions
- Perhaps, you can present an artifact like this French coin minted in 1782 to mark the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
- And then set-up a online asynchronous discussion and ask "What is the significance of minting this coin at that time in France? What does it indicate about the relationships between America and the powers in Europe?"
- Students can then answer with their original responses via a text response or a short pre-recorded video.
