Teaching Online: A Practical Guide

Ko and Rossen

Book Description:
Teaching Online: A Practical Guide is a practical, concise guide for educators teaching online. This updated edition has been fully revamped and reflects important changes that have occurred since the second edition’s publication. A leader in the online field, this best- selling resource maintains its reader friendly tone and offers exceptional practical advice, new teaching examples, faculty interviews, and an updated resource section.
New to this edition:

  • new chapter on how faculty and instructional designers can work collaboratively
  • expanded chapter on Open Educational Resources, copyright, and intellectual property
  • more international relevance, with global examples and interviews with faculty in a wide variety of regions
  • new interactive Companion Website that invites readers to post questions to the author, offers real-life case studies submitted by users, and includes an updated, online version of the resource section.

    Focusing on the "how" and "whys" of implementation rather than theory, this text is a must-have resource for anyone teaching online or for students enrolled in Distance Learning and Educational Technology Masters Programs.


    1. Excellent points and I agree with all of them. The network is the most important tool an educator can have and using the techniques/strategies you outline here can help one build, maintain, and expand theirs.
