Introductory Modules and Communication Plans
Successful communication in digital learning environments requires an intentional and balanced strategy. Introductory or orientation modules play a key role in that process by establishing the expectations and tone of the course. They usually include a welcome message from the instructor, access to the syllabus and other course documents, and orientation materials for any technical requirements or course mechanics. They also provide an opportunity to begin building a learning community that will support student engagement and knowledge construction in your course.
