For this project the instructor will divide the class into groups of three to four people. When you click on Collaborations, on the navigation bar to the left of this screen, your group members will be there. Choose Google Docs for the group work. You have two weeks to complete this project.

The goal of this project is to help students become more familiar with the Collaborations tool in Canvas and to have them work together respectfully and efficiently in an online group context. Group members should enter the discussions as quickly as possible, strive to cooperate with all members and persist in the discussions until the group project assignment is completed.

Your discussion question will be

“What is the best way for an online professor to promote retention in an online course?”

For the purposes of this assignment,


will be defined as:

A student registers for an online course.

That student completes the assignments for the course.

The student receives a passing grade for the course.

The Group needs to come to a consensus and decide on the


best method or practice that an instructor can use to ensure that all students complete the course.
