Online teaching and learning is faculty-delivered instruction via the Internet, lecture notes, solutions, and other course materials in PDF format before the lecture date or online access date. This will allow students to download and print course material in advance.
Structure online discussions Structure the course to capitalize on the threaded discussion format. Use existing textbook material or website readings for “lecture” and guide students through activities and threaded postings for active learning.
When learners interact with one another, with an instructor, and with ideas, new information is acquired, interpreted, and made meaningful. Such interactions form the foundation of a community of learners. If students feel they are part of a community if learners, they are more apt to be motivated to seek solutions to their problems and succeed. Our goal as distance educators is to develop strategies and techniques for establishing and maintaining ‘learning communities’ among learners separated by space and/or time.
We "humanize"our course, although we are teaching online, we are still teaching real important people, so it helps if we and students embrace this wonderful opportunity.
Students study the draft materials in the usual manner and may be asked to undertake any other requirements, for example submitting assignments, attending tutorial sessions, etc. and possibly sitting an examination upon completion of the course . Their comments on and reactions to the teaching can be collected by means of questionnaires and/or interviews and observations and are fed into the process of revising the course materials for 'final' presentation.
