Student interaction with content and instructor is a core teaching principle and directly related to successful online learning. However, faculty have limited time to develop interactive learning activities and even less time to provide individual feedback. Fortunately, technology can provide interactivity where one agent in is the computer. This presentation covers the importance of educational interaction and introduces you to Raptivity, a new tool for developing your own interactive activities, including educational games, interactive diagrams, and simulations. This presentation is organized by instructional strategies to help you connect your specific teaching needs to useful learning activities and best practices.
