Week 6 – Planning for the unknown

In Week 5 – UnderWay, we talked about how the online curriculum you have built will be used when students are in your class. The more significant concern is, what do you do when students aren’t on campus? The issue is not whether or not the class is set up (you’ve prepped your course and you have it in your online framework. It’s ready to go!), the real issue is how you ensure all students can access it.
Let’s focus on access to the internet, computers, technology, and paper packets.

Week 5 – Underway

In Week 4 – Live Instruction, we discussed what the opening of your class will look like, how you support students and tools you can be used to assist with that. This week we’re going to talk about your class. You’ve designed your curriculum, and students are using quizzes, discussion boards, and other Online Educational Resources (OER) for work. So let’s talk about how to define success, and what to expect from your role as an instructor, and how you use the tools of an online course to help with your workload and support the peers in your classroom.
