Bring in-class activities: When you are in the classroom, reading or doing a task alone does not seem to distract a student but in an online class, reading long dense text or long silences can easily cause a student’s attention to drift away. That’s why try to include such class activities that require a student to continuously talk or click in a momentum. You can make sure your student has something to say or to interact after 3 to 4 minutes. Try to ask lots of questions and include games that require a student to draw something using a tool. You can have brainstorm sessions or ask the students to solve a puzzle.
Appear presentable: When you are in the classroom you try to be your best self, this is also important when you are taking an online class. In fact, for an online class it is more important that you show your face, the location you are using and you both should look presentable as this will help the student be motivated and they will find what you saying more interesting. Also, the visuals you use to teach should be clean and any videos used should also be of good quality. Make sure the audio clips you use are good quality too. Try to change the tone of your voice to introduce new activities. Do make sure your internet connection is the best as nothing will have students switching off quicker than a bad connection that keeps getting disconnected.
Use technology to your full advantage and bring in different virtual tools such as pointers, virtual games, text editor, drawing tools, and file editors to liven up the lessons.
