In higher education, more online courses and programs are taught every year. It is a challenge for academic librarians to engage with and connect with the online student. Not only is the classroom in an online setting but the students might not even live near the physical campus. The presenters will discuss multiple strategies that librarians have used to engage and interact with students that enriches their learning experience. They will describe approaches for designing course interaction, email strategies, check in methods, and ways that grab the students’ attention. Session attendees will leave with several methods for engaging students in the online environment in a way that will enhance their learning. The paper will also include specific methods that can be customized.
