Juliet Villanueva, a higher ed teacher finds success in her online teaching venture with WizIQ
Juliet Villanueva has been teaching online courses at the higher education level, but more asynchronously, and using text-based discussion forum.
Passionate about teaching and connecting with most of her students, she explored other lesser known tools. Good move, but unfortunately, the course did not work in the manner she wanted. There were still a lot of concerns that had to be addressed. She had heard about WizIQ, so decided to shift gears, and maximize this platform. Great move, the course worked!
What were the issues that needed to be addressed?
-Unable to connect immediately with a large number of course participants
-Not able to conduct live sessions with two way communication
-Without a platform for face-to-face and multimodal communication, she was not able to address her students’ pressing concerns
-She had no way of validating whether her course is worth her student’s time
-She felt she could not engage her students by providing other options to learn together
