Students continue to change, and so must our classrooms and teaching strategies. Faculty should understand that there are differences between Gen Y and Gen Z students, and that we must continue to learn how to respond to, communicate with, and motivate our students. Even before the COVID-19 Pandemic changed the way higher education delivered instruction, EDUCAUSE’s 2019 Horizon Report stated that a significant development in higher education would be increased mobile learning. In March 2020, we all became mobile educators and learners, with the expectation that faculty members engage students in virtual environments as rich in relevant and meaningful experiences as are available in face-to-face classrooms. In an era in which all faculty members should all be prepared to reach students digitally, we need tools to effectively and efficiently instruct, monitor, motivate, captivate, and assess our students beyond what our LMS may provide.
