The Virtual Classroom Strategies module presents the skills that students need in order to succeed in a virtual classroom. Each section models traditional classroom strategies such as note taking, presentation skills, and reading comprehension strategies and presents how to use these skills in the online environment. In addition, the final section addresses the topic of Netiquette. It provides students with behavioural expectations for attending online classes and communicating via online channels such as email, discussion boards, and chat.
With this module, students will be able to solidify their understanding of necessary classroom skills and learn how to adapt them to online learning.

Each section of the Virtual Classroom Strategies module presents the content through specially designed instructional videos, as well as LinkedIn learning, Ted Talk, and YouTube videos. After watching the instructional videos, students complete activities that target the strategies presented in each section. At the end of each section, students take a short multiple choice test to demonstrate their knowledge.
