- Beyond Email: Harnessing Multimedia Tools to Effectively Communicate with Students
Forging a connection between instructors and students presents continued challenges in all course modalities. When Wooten-Blanks (2012) used PowerPoint to share her story including her struggles as a student, grades in her courses went up by about 20%. She said “I realized that my story had impacted the students” (par.2). Sull (2012) stated “Today’s technology allows us to get closer to our students—and lets our personalities really shine through” (par. 9).
