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
Make Money Teaching Online is the only guide you need to get started, find great teaching jobs, and earn more than you thought possible. If you want a personally and monetarily rewarding career in this revolutionary new industry, get online and get teaching.

This book has really helped me get jobs that allow me to earn a living while I prepare to complete my Ph.D. I got jobs at two universites, state and private, on the higher end of the market. However, I had a good deal of teaching experience due to my post-graduate experiences. I landed 2 jobs, which pay on the higher end of adjunct work for what I do by doing precisely what this book said I ought to do. I have friends who teach online, with similar experience and haven't been able to make what I do, so I guess this book does offer some sound advice.
The author covers the ins and outs of teaching online, like how to know which students need more attention, dealing with personality conflicts and lets you know that there will be a lot of waiting involved, even if you do receive an interview. You'll still have to through mandatory unpaid training. And even then, assignments won't come consistently for a while. Teaching online isn't for everyone and it requires much patience.
The only reason I'm giving the book 4 stars is that it could stand to be revised a bit, but if you want to work in online education, this is the book for you.
Easy to read and understand, and very realistic in the presentation of the profession. Great job!
