Abstract

Enrollment rates in institutions of higher education continue to increase. Online course enrollments continue to grow rapidly and with budget cuts many institutions are increasing online class sizes as a strategy for meeting this increased demand. Yet how can instructors faced with large numbers of students engaged and motivated in the online environment? This paper examines the literature on the relationship between class size and student engagement. In addition, this paper identifies effective strategies and online tools for creating social presence in large online classes (more than 100 students) thereby supporting student achievement and engagement. This session seeks to further explore the relationship between class size and student engagement along with identifying effective strategies and online tools for creating social presence in large online classes (more than 100 students) thereby supporting student achievement and engagement.
