Handbook of Research on Transformative Digital Content and Learning Technologies
“An online, personalized learning experience built on Cengage Learning’s content that combines student learning tools—readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments—into a Learning Path that guides students through their course. Instructors can personalize the experience by customizing Cengage Learning content and learning tools, including adding their own content via apps that integrate into the MindTap framework with Learning Management Systems” ( Massey, 2016 , p. 2).

Group counseling is one of the core counseling courses which students need in order to receive their degrees. As group counseling is an experiential course, counselor educators must think strategically and creatively when developing this course to be delivered online to ensure that positive outcomes are achieved. Hence, this chapter explores the development, implantations and lessons learned from such a course. We will specifically discuss the integration of WebEx, MindTap/Coursemate, and a residency component that enhances the delivery of this master's level group counseling online course and by encouraging active engagement of both the students and instructor alike. The development and implementation of the online group course is guided by Bandura's theory. An informal evaluation from a previous online group counseling course using these modes will also be discussed. Implications for instructors and students will be included.
