ABSTRACT

This study explores the impact of online collaboration platforms (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, etc.) and their continuing use in post-pandemic higher education. The research examines how interactive role-playing assignments in online courses using a collaboration platform such as Zoom can enhance student engagement, collaboration, and learning. The instructor’s transition from one-on-one phone calls to using Zoom to conduct interactive role-playing assignments is discussed. The use of online collaboration platforms allowed the instructor to be effective with their own time in being able to create an impactful interactive assignment and being able to reach all students in significantly less time versus phone calls being done on a one-on-one basis. The overall feedback received from the students showed an appreciation of having the interactive role-playing assignment conducted on Zoom as they were able to learn from each other's responses and interact in a live setting. The use of online collaboration platforms for key assignment(s) in specific courses that are relevant in doing so has helped to provide an enriching learning experience that inadvertently adds further depth and understanding to the other written-based assignments in the online courses. This research showcases the significance of online collaboration platforms and their effective use for interactive assignments in an online course setting.
