What are the main communication skills needed by an online facilitator/ tutor for effective learning engagement?
Greetings CS$ODFL. Is there a common time where we (CS4ODFL participants) from different locations are able to meet together? Will be nice to chat in a timely active manner with each other. Just a thought. Happy remote learning.
Many thanks for your suggestion and active participation in the course!
We have participants from multiple time zones with varying degrees of teaching experience, internet connectivity, digital skills, and personal and professional commitments in the course. Therefore, no real-time meeting is currently scheduled (it will be scheduled if needed). However, I strongly encourage those interested in participating in synchronised activities to take up this opportunity as a group challenge to discuss and set up a synchronised activity. Interested #cs4odfl participants can use this discussion thread to organise a real-time event—I would like to see a clear meeting goal, group cohesion, and sound rationalisation for selecting the appropriate technology (refer to Module 2 learning materials). Best!

Hi…@2424 you can manage your password for Moodle, CS4ODFL Platform and Mastodon. If saved on your desktop/laptop/tablet, you don’t have to type password all the time
Hi @Esther …main communication skills for an online facilitator is to guide the students and provide feedback and answer questions in the forum or Mastodon in #course CS4ODFL
A few communication skills neede by a fascilitator to my knowlege would include:
-to use clear and concise language
-being a good listener
-compassion and empathy
and most of all,feedbacks should be provided to students so they know where they stand
Okay I agree with you that is well noted
Well children have different learning abilities. On a Synchronous setting,we are to ensure that we deliver our lessons and make sure that we are present together with the class.My question is this. How do we handle the children that are below average like we handle them on one on one intervention face to face?

Before we were born, we were remoted (inside the womb) when we are born we started to interact (synchronous), as we grow we tend to go back to remote (asynchronous) as noted in #cs4dofl @deepakParasad reacted to #Hi Bwebwentekaai. When we die, we again come together (sychronous, people come together) and when one is buried, we tend to go back remoted. - My opion to the zero interest to my post, is we are more interested to be remoted rather than intreactive
