Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning

It is important to begin planning online courses early because teaching in the online environment involves principles and practices different from those used in traditional face-to-face instruction. During this online session offered November 11, 2013 I introduced the unique characteristics of online instruction and provided an overview of the components in an engaging and interactive online course. This online workshop was geared toward an audience who is new to online teaching and to those wanting to refresh their knowledge about online teaching fundamentals. | view slides
