Creating effective student engagement in online courses, can be a daunting task for many instructors new to teaching online, and is strongly dependent on how well the course was designed. While online course design is rooted in the same solid principles of face-to-face teaching, it requires additional considerations when it comes to course structuring and layout, content delivery, student motivations, learning activities and even student assessment which need to be tailored to the particular nature of online delivery. For students to remain engaged and active throughout their learning, instructors will need to carefully plan, design and deliver their courses. Student will need to be motivated in different ways and may require a greater level of clarity, support, guidance, coaching and mentoring.
