About the Event
This course will acquaint attendees with information about using technology tools for teaching distance learning courses. We will discuss options and best practices for asynchronous and synchronous distance classes, as well as “blended” classes that offer both in-person and online options. Adult learning principles will be reviewed. We will examine and discuss examples of software and website tools in teaching.
The class is taught "asynchronously" using the Moodle course management system, so you can complete the classwork at a time convenient for you. Allow approximately 2 hours per week for classwork. There are 4 weeks of assignments, readings, and discussions, with the 5th week saved for a "catch-up" week. Upon completion of the class you will receive 8 MLA CE credits.
