Free Self-Paced Stanford University Online Course on Online Teaching


This self-paced Stanford Online course is free and covers the basics of Creating Effective Online and Blended Courses. The topics covered in the course include course structure, learning objectives, assessment, content presentation, and social presence & motivation. The material is pedagogical and doesn’t endorse specific educational technologies.

I think the course could be a great introduction to someone who’s new to teaching online, but some of the topics might be of interest to online and blended learning veterans as well. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Heather from Foothill College for the heads up!
