  1. Find the balance between what is convenient vs. what is effective
  2. Students prefer 2nd chances for assignments
  3. Qualitatively feedback preferred over the quantitative numeric score
  4. Prefer written feedback rather than video and audio (video takes awhile to load)

In this post, the HSU Department of Online Education’s features Dr. Sim and Michelle Chahyadi’s reflection on research-based practices supporting effective learning activities for online classes.
