You should be aware of their pace and capability of learning so that you can guide them accordingly. When your learners will feel supported by their educator then they will automatically work hard to learn better.
  • Always ask for a feedback from your learners. It is a fact that feedbacks help in effective learning. Tell your learners that you are open for any feedback and query. Allow them to ask their doubts in chats during a class. After class keep some spare time to solve the queries.

Keep the above postulates in mind during online teaching. These fundamentals will immensely help you to keep your learners doing well and your classes soaring high!
