Thursday, March 28, 2019 | 1:00 PM Central | 60 Minutes

Have you ever wondered how to go about building a cohesive online learning community where students are actively engaged and where you feel like you’re able to manage the workload that accompanies such a large group of students? Student engagement can be a challenge in any online class, and it is particularly challenging in a large-enrollment online class.
