Designing and Teaching online

The Designing and Teaching Online course focuses on the theory and practice of teaching online. In the course, you will learn the basics of effective course design for both online and hybrid courses. You will also explore best practices in teaching online and hybrid courses.

In this course, participants will learn about online course design and best practices. They will also explore learning and teaching in the online environment. As a part of that exploration, they will be introduced to the following topics:

  • Addressing student readiness
  • Setting expectations
  • Designing effective courses
  • Creating assessments
  • Communicating and building an online community

Each topic has a module written to address content specific to that topic. In addition, every module has information and resources to expand the participant’s knowledge of the topic.

The course is composed of 6 modules and all material can be downoaded and printed. The course was funded by a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. The solution was created by the grantee and does not necessarily reflect the official position of the U.S. Department of labor. Netiquette available here:
