Teaching Online at UD

Are you new to teaching online or looking for ways to improve an existing class? If you answered yes to either of the previous questions you’ve come to right place. Teaching an online course that provides the same level of quality and communication that a face-to-face course does is often a very time consuming and difficult task. Many times what works best in the classroom doesn't translate well to the online environment. In order to get the best from your online class and focus students’ work we’ve created a ‘Teaching Online Guide’ for UD faculty. The guide will help you create an effective learning experience for your students. The guide and appendices below will help you to understand what’s required to teach an effective online class. The resources will also help guide you through the development and course administration tasks in Isidore – UD’s Learning Management System.
