Audio Check

I am aware that many of you are new to online learning and to using computers, so before we get started… lets conduct a quick audio check.

If you can’t hear me, please confirm that the volume on your speakers are on and if you have external speakers confirm that they are plugged in.

If you can’t hear me, please try logging out and back in. This often fixes the problem.

If this does not work – please call Tech Support at 1-866-522-7747

Unit 4 Overview

This unit focuses on learning environments that encourage the students to become actively engaged in activities that are similar to their everyday experiences. These experiences encourage the students to be creative and to use their imagination. When students are involved in the learning process and they are able to express their interests, the outcome is a positive one. You also will learn classroom management  strategies that will help develop a positive learning environment.

  •  This comes from Unit 10 in the current CE101.
