How Can I Create an Online Service Learning Project?

Discover ways for students to raise awareness about topics related to your class and get the community involved. Learn how to teach students about different types of communities and calls to action that generate results.

Engage your online students with innovative service learning activities

Service learning activities are a rich learning tool in higher education. Students who participate in some form of community service tied to their coursework get more out of the material. They are also more likely to complete their degrees.

Online classes pose a special problem for faculty wanting to do service learning. These students expect greater flexibility and the ability to fulfill assignments at their computer—conditions that are not particularly conducive to traditional service learning opportunities. Educators may also find it daunting to come up with options that engage distance learning students with nontraditional schedules.

Pioneering educators are coming up with fresh ways to adapt to these new challenges. How Can I Create an Online Service Learning Project?—the 20-Minute Mentor video from Magna Publications now available for purchase—explores practical solutions to this dilemma.

Dr. Stephanie Delaney, the dean of extended learning at Seattle Community College, draws from her teaching experiences in an online classroom to show how she developed a meaningful service learning experience that can be easily duplicated—the "call to action" project.

The video reveals how to structure a call to action activity and how to guide online students in choosing topics that stimulate them. Particular emphasis is given to coming up with a topic that ignites student ambition, but which can be realistically executed in the allotted time. You learn how to help them establish sensible schedules, prepare interim updates, and submit a final report.

Dr. Delaney illustrates her strategies with several concrete examples taken from call to action activities from her own online classroom. 

Help your online students maximize the benefits of a service learning activity specially geared for their unique circumstances. Purchase your video today.
