Fundamentals of Online Learning

The Fundamentals of Online Learning (FoOT) is a three-week online course for faculty - and others in teaching roles. This course examines the structure, tools and activities that make online learning effective. It introduces the research base that supports good online teaching. Participants develop a keen understanding of what it is like to be an online student. This course is designed for face to face instructors who wish to improve the online elements of their course - as well as those who teach blended and fully online courses. This is not an introduction to Blackboard (See Blackboard BootCamp below). See a draft of the syllabus. Expect to spend a minimum of 5 hrs. each week.
