As classes in higher education move online, one of the things likely to suffer is the level of creative engagement available to students. The lowest common denominator for online is text, and so much of the engagement in every class is going to be primarily (if not exclusively) text-based. To counter this a bit, in this short, bonus episode, I offer some guides and suggestions for bringing digital creativity into the online class. Specifically, I recommend using Adobe Spark Page for creating (asynchronous) course content and for student assignments, Adobe Spark Post for student activities, and Spark Video and Adobe Rush for video-based engagements (instructor and student).
Related to this engagement, I also created (and continue to update) an Adobe Spark page offering guides and strategies for Transitioning Teaching Online. It is something of a patchwork pedagogy, focusing less on full online design principles and more on just trying to help ease the transition for the many first-time online educators out there.
