How many times has an educator looked out from his or her podium to see students who are not engaged in the content or appear to be unmotivated to learn? Educators only want the best for their students so, what can instructors do to engage and motivate their students to want to learn about the material being presented? Educators need to continue to improve their skills with regards to teaching and using multimedia methods. By taking the lead and assessing the needs of students, educators have an obligation to take into account how students learn. Whether it is through visual, auditory, or kinesthetic means ├ó┬?┬? instructors need to ensure one takes into account the needs of learners. In 2012, a study found that there are 6.5 million students taking at least one online course in the United States. It would be myopic to think these numbers will decrease in the future. If anything, the numbers will continue to grow as online and distance education courses continue to be developed and provided in various fields of study. Educators need to learn how to engage online and distance students. By doing so, these same methods can be employed in a classroom setting. Learners expect an engaging, interactive, and flexible learning environment and this presentation will help educators to motivate and engage learners in several different learning environments. The intent of this presentation is to provide instructors with some tools that will help educators engage students in a classroom, online or distance setting.
