Distance Learning can be Positive. It is important for the instructor to “read” the actions of the students to understand who is paying attention and getting the lesson and who isn’t.
The instructor needs to make sure the lesson is presented in a way that can be understood. Talking fast does not work. Talking slowly doesn’t either. It is necessary to strike a happy medium.
The instructor should take time to listen to the flow of his or her voice. The dictate on Microsoft Word or Google should be used. Instructors need to remember that it takes a certain amount of time for the students to hear and process the information.
