We are glad to have you in our Virtual Quick Start to Online Teaching environment!

Listen to the Keynote Address by Dr. Maggie O’Hara, Assistant Dean of Online Programs, College of Business and Chair of the Online Quality Council

The virtual component to our longstanding Quick Start to Online Teaching is an option for you, our faculty, designed to offer and provide you with resources for planning, developing, and delivering your online courses. As you peruse this site and watch the videos, some questions may come to mind, such as:

  • Do I need to add an interactive component to my course to enhance student learning?
  • Am I looking for new ways to present my content online to breathe new life into your course?
  • Would my students benefit from participation and collaboration in educational simulations?
  • Would my students benefit from the services of the Virtual Computing Lab?

Components are located in the Planning and Resources and Designing and Delivering tabs on this blog. For each component, you will find a description, educational uses, contact information, as well as a video introduction.

As another option, for those of you who want to view the real face-to-face two hour “quick start,” you’ll find the 2/25/11 recorded session here.
