Distance Learning Basics: Recruitment, Intake, and Orientation


In this online course, participants will explore strategies and processes for recruiting learners for distance education and for conducting intake and orientation at a distance. They will reflect on their current best practices and consider how we might adjust those practices for distance education.

By the end of the course, participants will develop a communication strategy for a target audience, outline an intake process, and design an orientation that sets up distance learners for success.

This is an asynchronous, facilitated course on Schoology. Participants should expect to spend 2-3 hours each week engaging with the course content.
