“Cornell contracted with us (AWI) to coach their people with their on-camera skills for MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses),” said VanCort. In a traditional classroom, it doesn’t matter much if the professor drones on and on in a monotone, barely looking up from the podium. The students have to sit and listen anyway. But online teaching requires something a bit different, because if the presentation is boring, the student will walk away from the computer. Varying your tone of voice, standing straight, and looking at the camera can make a world of difference.
