Abstract

Because online courses have become a common format for delivery of instruction, faculty can act as behavior change agents to help students work and feeling more connected in online courses. Educators can create or provide activities that will help nudge or adjust students’ behavior to make them more successful in the course. This paper provides five researched activities and strategies that have been integrated into online classes to nudge students to be more successful. Strategies presented include the use of a phone conversation, daily emailing of a required text, course link placement, a map of student locations, and a weekly generalized activity checklist reminder.
