The “stop/start/continue” method is a classic, and still works in an online format, but you may want to add some additional questions specific to the use of technology and asynchronous course design in your course. Consider asking students questions like:
- Which resources/tools do you use the most frequently?
- Have you been able to meet/connect with other students in this class?
- Have you had significant issues with internet bandwidth, access to a computer, or other technology that has impeded your ability to be successful so far?
Once you’ve collected your responses, analyze them by looking for themes and broad issues that you feel empowered and willing to address. Consider that any changes or modifications to your teaching should be rooted in your desired outcomes, disciplinary conventions, and departmental expectations.
