dc.description.abstractWhen the COVID-19 global health crisis disrupted a University semester in-progress, instructors for the technology integration courses at a large, public university faced multiple challenges in maintaining instructional continuity and community. Specifically, we explored instructional strategies and technologies that would foster online learner engagement and connection during this time. We redesigned course activities for the online format and utilized mobile instant messaging, digital whiteboard, and synchronous session technologies in conjunction with the learning management system functionality. Early results based on instructor reflections and student feedback offer insights into how the collaborative strategies and tools have fostered meaningful social connectedness for students and instructors during the pandemic. Suggestions for collaborative technology applications to support online teaching are provided.en_US
