Research and experience shows that a strong start toward building community can do wonders for learning and engagement in your online course. For most online courses, this begins with the Introductory post or icebreaker activity in Week 1.

During this combined 1-hour web conference and one week discussion we will explore (easy, fun, and free) ways to go beyond the plain text forum post.
