Module 2 - Effective Online Teaching
 
Key Principles to Consider in Online Education
 
1. Effective online instruction should provide prompt and detailed feedback...
 
It is important that online instructors provide prompt and detailed feedback to allof their online learners for every assignment. Feedback can be individual, whichis suggested at the beginning of courses, or given to group as a whole. Feedback should provide both information for improvement and acknowledgement. Even when instructors are busy, they should send responses and feedback letting theirstudents know that they will communicate with them at a later time and providea reasonable time give proper feedback or assistance. If good, quality feedback isnot given or comes very late after assignments, students may get the impressionthat their instructor is inaccessible.

2. Effective online instruction should emphasize time on task...
 
Unlike traditional classrooms, online learning environments do not providestudents the luxury of having a teacher stand over them and consistently tellthem to stay on task! However, good online instructors will facilitate time on task as much as possible by implementing deadlines for student work. Deadlines notonly increase time on task, but provide structure for online learningenvironments and aid in preventing procrastination.

3. Effective online instruction develops reciprocity and cooperation amongstudents...
 
”Learning is enhanced when it is more like a team effort than a solo race. Good
learning, like good work, is collaborative and social, not competitive and isolated.
 Working with others often increases involvement in learning. Sharing one’s ideasand responding to others’ improves thinking and deepens understanding.”
