Teaching an Online Course
The best way to ensure the success of your online course and students is to actually be in the course space
frequently so you can provide feedback and answer questions. Online students do not always know when
they will hear from their instructor. So read the interaction policy on your syllabus and update it as needed,
before the course begins, through Course Verification.
In addition, students want to know who you are, what you're like. They want to know that there is a person behind
the curtain, so write with a personal voice, give a call, schedule a synchronous live chat with individual students
or the entire class, whatever it takes to let them know you are involved and engaged.
