The other day I was on Cindy Hopkins grade sheet and saw she came online at the same time (you can see this in the upper right corner of a Google Doc, each person is represented by a colored square) and took the opportunity to chat with her in real time.
I often see more than one person looking at the blog list, or one of the Google Docs for the weekly assignments. Take time to chat with other members who might happen to be online at the same time as you are. It’s a great way to build that personal connection with others. You can talk about the class, your school, your kids, or your favorite wine.
There are opportunities all around us to chat and connect, we just have see them and then use them to connect.
