Teaching Online Overview

Teaching online and teaching in a traditional classroom are both similar and different in many ways. The resources provided here are intended to help our faculty teaching online courses understand what is expected of them as an online faculty member and to provide resources that will help them effectively teach their online courses.

Focus on Quality

The College of Online Education is dedicated to offering a quality educational experience to all students taking online courses. To ensure quality, we have established a robust set of expectations for faculty and we provide strong support to help faculty with the implementation of our expectations. All faculty are assigned a dedicated instructional designer to help with instructional issues, and a dedicated instructional technologist to help with technology-related issues. Ultimately, faculty are held accountable for meeting the teaching expectations, although we are here to help. Online teaching expectations are available through the links on the left side of the screen.
