Last night we held a synchronous shootout at Penn State Great Valley. Participants were divided into groups and asked to complete the challenge below. All of the teams came up with great ideas, and the classes they developed are posted below.

Scenario
Web conferencing giant, iLinc Communications, would like to teach a “Best Practices for Virtual Instructors” class. The class will be taught online using their web conferencing tool. The intended audience is instructors who have taught in the classroom, but are new to teaching online.

Shootout Challenge
The following slides are an early draft of the content that was put together for this class. You can use as much or as little as you’d like. In order to practice what you preach, you must create a class that not only includes great information, but also has interactive activities to help make the session fun and engaging. Each team only has 1 hour to work on the class, so complete as much as you can. Good luck!
