Teaching Online: A Guide for Online Instructors

This portion of the Project Based Learning site provides information about developing and teaching online courses. If you are new to online teaching the information on these pages will help you gain a feel for the elements of virtual instruction. If you have taught online before the ideas and strategies described here may help you expand your understanding of virtual pedagogy and give you new ideas to try.
