Icebreakers as an Effective Way to Build Community

Breaking the ice is the most important part of the course and sets the foundation for the work you will do over the coming hours, days or weeks to build community online.

Establishment of the virtual group if done well will lead to synchronous presence and enhance each student’s learning.
