From the Inside Flap
Two adjunct professors explain how theydiscovered great pay, flexible hours, and rewarding work
You may not consider teaching a very exciting profession, or at least not a lucrative one. But what if you could teach from homeor anywhere in the worldand earn a six-figure salary doing it? Tens of thousands of people make a great living teaching online courses from wherever they happen to be. And the more courses they teach, the more money they can make.
Online universities are sprouting up around the country and revolutionizing the way we teach and learn, and enterprising educators are cashing in. Traditional universities are offering more courses onlineand they need growing numbers of adjunct faculty to teach them. In Make Money Teaching Online, online educators Danielle Babb and Jim Mirabella explain how to get the education you need, find high-paying teaching jobs, and increase workloads and income.
Today, more than eighty percent of learners have taken at least one online course, and those numbers continue to rise. But rather than hire tenure-track professors, institutions are increasingly looking for part-time, remote educators to teach online courses. By teaching multiple classes, you can make much more money than most full-time tenured professors.
Step by step, the authors show you how to:
- Find legitimate online universities and opportunities
- Discover what universities look for in online educators
- Manage and master the technology you need to teach
- Maintain professional relationships and grow your business like a consultancy
- Balance your workload to minimize effort and maximize income
- And much more
