The essential guide to teaching in a virtual environment

Online Teaching in the Digital Age provides educators with the essential knowledge needed to successfully develop and teach an online course. Throughout this practical hands-on guide, the authors offer 15 years of personal online teaching experience in language accessible to both the novice and advanced online educator. Developed through theory and practice, the text shows educators how to take the materials used in a traditional classroom and transfer them to a new virtual environment. Additionally, it gives educators the confidence and skills needed to run real-time (synchronous) and time-arranged (asynchronous) online discussions. Most reassuring of all, this book shows that few traditional course elements need to change in order to start teaching online.
