Getting to Know You: Making Personal Connections Using Carmen Tools

When a course is changed from a modified in-class setting to an online presence, instructors have to adjust the approach to teaching and onboarding students. The desire to maintain the same level of individual instructor/student interface with the PharmD students had to be preserved. For this course, two Carmen tools were utilized creating a new online community and an individualized introduction from the students. This presentation will showcase these tools. It will demonstrate how to create a more personal connection with students in an online course, through the quiz and video function. Additionally, these modules, assignments, and tips can be used to ensure and confirm student comprehension of course syllabi and review of required documentation prior to obtaining access to the course.
