Conducting Live Classes Using CorissLine
What happens in a traditional classroom?
What is Pedagogy?
What would happen if we did not have to convert your traditional syllabi to use in your online tool?
What would happen if you did not have to convert your existing learning materials to be used in your online tool?
If teachers learn to teach in a certain way and students learn to learn in a certain way, why should we ask everyone to change?

Chat What is the difference between managing a live online session and managing a traditional class session? YOU
If you think you should do all the lecture chatting then you will eventually need to see a doctor for your hands and then a another doctor for your head.
Chat Anarchy • Reduce chat anarchy • Instructor owns the chat floor • Reduce dead chat air • Don’t let the chat get boring • Set the rules for discussion • Integrate other resources
Async Chat • Chat Rules • Only one person chats at a time • Students chat when responding or need to ask a question • End chat with two “//” to give chat floor back • Type a few words then send chat then type a few more words…..
Async Chat • Chat Rules • Always start a chat with someone’s name • Use soft words and not hard words • Have frequent breaks • Emotocons are helpful • Forget spelling errors
Async Chat • A Breather • Chat a question then call upon a student for a response • Call upon another student for their response • Call upon a third student and chat “Bill, what do you think about what Mary said?”
Async Chat • Use Other Resources • Ask students to spawn another instance of their browser and size the two browsers to fit side by side • Use the second instance of the browser to use other web resources • Save your chat, edit it to add value and give it back to students as a record
Audio What is the difference between managing a live online session and managing a traditional class session? YOU
Audio Is Great! Communicate directly with students Provide same lecture as with traditional class Augment audio with chat More realistic class Provides your personality

Put the dog away as some students may have cats! Put the family away if you are going through the teen years
Audio Lecture Tips • It takes about 20 seconds from the time you ask a question and receive a chat answer Audio delay time plus student thinking and typing time • Hang a picture on the wall and talk to it. • Always tell students what you are doing like pausing, etc.
Audio Lecture Tips • Not all audio cards have the same quality for receiving audio, talk slowly and enunciate • At the beginning of each class ask for an audio check for loudness • Students should not chat during the lecture – Ask them to use the scan feature
Audio Lecture Tips • Pass the microphone to students to speak to give yourself a break • Let students present their projects with audio to make the class more realistic. • Always call upon students to respond – good pedagogy for learning
Audio and chat is not enough to conduct a realistic class.Essential Features
