I finally got around to uploading more videos to the Confer YouTube channel and there are some dandies. The information here could save you time as you plan your Confer classes. Here's a sample:
By setting up a profile, you allow your audience (students) to find out more about you. Even the simple addition of a picture gives students a sense of connection.
Before you actually have a session, you have to set it up. Chris Riegle explains how he sets up his Teach & Confer classes above, and Donna Eyestone gives advice about setting up Office Hours below.
How long should you plan your sessions? How should you schedule them?
There's a lot more of this kind of tried and true advice than I can share here. Visit the channel and take a look around at the great teachers who've taken time to pass along their experience and insights to the rest of us.
