Packback has received numerous requests from institutions on how they can effectively transition their face-to-face courses online in both (a) keeping students engaged and (b) supporting faculty teaching online. To do our part in ensuring students stay connected and engaged, we have decided to provide zero cost Packback licenses through the end of the term (up to June 30 2020) for any courses moving online for COVID-19 prevention.
As an instructor, you’ve probably experienced disengaged online discussion boards. You want students sharing insights into class assignments and engaging in productive dialogues about how to apply class concepts to their lives. Instead, students ask closed-ended questions and respond to each others’ posts with one-word answers.
At Packback, we’re dedicated to promoting student engagement no matter the subject, class size or student environment! Learn from one of Packback’s Senior Experience Managers on how instructors are using Packback to inspire student curiosity.
