Marko Sanden wrote this as a comment here on the PLC last week. It contains good insights into the details of online language instruction:
“I remind them regularly that my assumption is that they WILL demonstrate interpersonal communication skills and that I’ve already given them those points each class and only they can lose them.
For example, all cameras are to be turned on at the start of class. I do allow for special circumstances such as others in the room or other personal reasons, but if any one student tries to repeatedly keep their camera off, I have a chat with them after 3 or 4 classes. However, at this point in the year, they must enter into the chat (privately to me only) the reason that they have to have their camera off.
