Use online class reaction surveys to ensure comprehension

Students in online courses do not have the opportunity to raise their hands to ask for clarification and at times may be hesitant to reach out directly to you with questions. It is also difficult to gauge understanding, because online classes lack visual cues that indicate students may be confused. Therefore, consider using a short online reaction survey to gauge students’ understanding of important instructions or key material before moving forward with the additional module content and activities.
