  • Understands the differences between teaching online and teaching face-to-face

      Many similarities between the two but a real trick to accomplish in the online world. And the instructor needs to be aware of how to "read" people in the online participant world.
  • Designs the structure of the course and the presentation of the content to best enhance student learning, including using unit/lesson overviews and reviews, using patterns in lesson sequencing, and using appropriate visual web design techniques
    • Mary Blaisdell
       
      This will be important to assist learners in their progress through the course. Without good structure/content/techniques, the online instruction will likely be boring, inadequate and inaccesible.

      This is a tricky one. Who can keep up with the seemingly endless new technology tools? It's an important thing, though, to keep trying because new and better tools keep rolling in for us to possibly do our jobs even better with students.
  • Tailors instruction to meet the different needs of students, including different learning styles, different interests and backgrounds,
    • Mary Blaisdell
       
      I am beginning to get the picture that online instruction is one way we can do just this...meet the various needs of students. We are better able to differentiate because of the multitude of resources at our fingertips.
