Developing an Online Curriculum: Technologies and Techniques
Porter, Lynnette R.
Information Science Publishing
This book acts as a guidebook for teachers and administrators as they look for support with their online education programs. It offers teaching suggestions for everything from course development to time management and community building. The book is designed to provide information to help teachers work more effectively with online tools, develop course materials for existing online courses, work with the internet as a medium of education and complete daily activities--such as evaluating assignments, lecturing and communicating with students more easily. Administrators are also given support in their efforts to recruit, train, and retain online teachers, allocate resources for online education and evaluate online materials for promotion and tenure. Following a preface, this guide contains nine chapters: (1) Facilitating the Online Curriculum; (2) Adding a Course to the Curriculum; (3) Updating and Developing Course Materials; (4) The Tools of the Trade; (5) The Daily Work of Teaching; (6) The Aesthetics of Teaching; (7) Developing Support Networks; (8) Managing Programs and Faculty Concerns; and (9) Planning for the Future. A glossary and index are included. (Individual chapters contain references.)
