2 reviews for Engaging Distance Learning

  1. Sharon – East Muskingum Local Schools (verified owner)

    She had practical tips that can be used immediately.

  2. Kim – EULA ISD (verified owner)

    Hopefully we are not REQUIRED to use distance learning in the future, but when we do need to use it, this course had some GREAT ideas. So great that it might be even more effective to use some of these techniques even if we are in the classroom, face to face.
