As online education literally explodes, the issue facing the education system is that teaching online is not the same as teaching face to face. If youâ€™re a teacher, be it home school, public school, Bible study teacher, or someone who teaches a special skill or subject, you know this.
The question for many people wishing to transition to teaching in a virtual classroom is a very simple one: How do I do an effective job of teaching online?
Thatâ€™s the question this course is designed to answer. In this course, University of Phoenix Advanced Certified Online Instructor David Lantz walks you through the teaching strategies being used by the best online college instructors to teach in an asynchronous online course.
A total of 17 video lessons divided between 3 course modules constitute the core of the learning materials. These videos are recorded power point presentations converted to video designed to emphasize key learning objectives. Additionally, each module is accompanied by an ebook (PDF) designed to round out the video presentations. Each module is introduced and concluded by a video of the course creator, David Lantz.
A fourth module, Next Steps, concludes the course, and offers several other resources the student may wish to take advantage of.
Depending on the pace of the online learner, one should plan to spend about four hours going through the materials.
