Interactive eLearning

How do you create interaction with students in an online world?

Students learn through their participation in the learning process. When they are active members of your class, they are deepening their learning by applying concepts and articulating new knowledge.

Examples of Interaction in eLearning include:

  • Asynchronous/Synchronous formative assessments
  • Video/Audio discussions
  • Interactive games/quizzes
  • Simulations
  • Branching exercises

Earn a badge!

The world is changing fast and, today more than ever, traditional modes of assessment fail to capture the learning that happens everywhere and at every age. Digital badges are a powerful tool for identifying and validating the rich array of people's skills, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies. Digital badges are a type of micro-credential, meaning that they are smaller in scope than traditional credentialing systems such as degrees and certifications. Districts are encouraged to use the provided resources to create there own badging opportunities. In addition, WOSU Classroom provides fee-based evaluation services to award badges using the evidence of learning choice board and evaluation rubric. Information about WOSU Classoom Certificates of Attendance and graduate credit are available at
