One thought on “Aloha and Welcome to How To Teach Online!

  1. 1. My main intention taking part in this course is to colaborate and share ideas and learn from my peers’ experiences. I’ve been teaching for a more than ten years presential and online courses (lately most of them are elearning courses).

    2. In my opinion updating, reutilization and dissemination are key factors when we are talking about learning courses, always having in mind a difficulties that may upsurge for teachers and students when working with these resources.

    3. I will try to colaborate by commenting problems that normaly appear when students have to face online education for the very first time, how to help them to solve these problems and, through my experience in class with everything that may be helpful for my mates.

    4. This depends so much on participants’ willingness that I’d rather wait to see how things are going on.

    5. This is very true indeed and it is very linked to the previous question. For many people this is the very first time they tackle with an online course and (above all in the begining) they may be very frustrating and many people decide to give in (they are squeezed by time, have family burdens or simply they find something better to do than to follow a boring and complex course) so, I repeat, to be determined to do the course and working constantly on it is the only way to get a successful end.

    See you on the course!
