Book Description

October 12, 2010 1591401364 978-1591401360
This acts as a guidebook for teachers and administrators as they look for support with their online education programs. It offers teaching suggestions for everything from course development to time management and community building. The book is designed to provide information to help teachers work more effectively with online tools, develop course materials for existing online courses, work with the internet as a medium of education and complete daily activities - such as evaluating assignments, lecturing and communicating with students more easily. Administrators are also given support in their efforts to recruit, train, and retain online teachers, allocate resources for online education and evaluate online materials for promotion and tenure.

More About the Author

Writing has always been a passion. I'm the sole author, co-author, or editor of 14 books so far. As a contributing editor to PopMatters, I write a monthly film/television column, Deep Focus. Add introductions or chapters in another dozen books, plus journal articles and reviews, and you can see why my colleagues think I'm a bit obsessed with the research-and-writing process. I only hope that I'm passing on a few insights about communication (and maybe inspiring greater interest in film or fantasy and science fiction lit) as I teach students at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach, Florida. When I'm not absorbed with a new project or classes, I like to travel. Favorite destinations include Scotland, Wales, Canada, and New Zealand--and I always have a book or two with me for the long flights.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one covers all of the bases. November 15, 2003
This is a comprehensive, easy-read that brings every aspect of online curriculum development into focus before it marches into the details of practical, successful class management. Through it all, Lynnette's constant thread is defining the role of the teacher in creating an online community that works. She is an excellent guide. Whether your target is an online class or a curriculum, read this one. For the technically challenged, it covers all the tools. For the technology-savy, it draws attention to the human element. Even if you're already involved with online education, you'll find fresh ideas here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uninspired May 9, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There was not much of substance in this book. The information was simplistic and really a survey of concepts. Not at all a go-to, idea filled resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning to teach online March 8, 2007
I am a college professor migrating into the "new" world of teaching online. If I had to recommend a book for "How To" this is it. A must read for anyone attempting to go there!
