Live and Online!: Tips, Techniques, and Ready-to-Use Activities for the Virtual Classroom
Live and Online! offers the key to designing effective interactions for the synchronous classroom. This ensures that participants have ample opportunity to collaborate and interact, which in turn helps them to successfully learn online. Author Jennifer Hofmann explains the use of powerful synchronous tools—Whiteboard, Chat, Breakout Room, Application Sharing, and Synchronized Web Browsing—provides sample exercises for each tool, and offers advice on how each tool fits into the instructional landscape. At the end of each exercise there is space provided for notes and suggestions on how to customize the interaction for specific projects. The companion CD-ROM contains sample graphics, leader guide pages that support the exercises, and templates for creating leader and participant materials and interactive plans.

It is very hard to review this book without purchasing it. The author gives no sampling of what is available within its covers which gives on time to ponder if the book is worth purchasing at all.
