"The thing that strikes me about this class (my first online) is the repeated invitations by the instructor to give feedback both to him and to the other learners. I feel genuinely "invited" and that encourages interaction between instructor and learners." M.A., Minnesota
"I am glad to have taken this program. It gave me lots of information to build a hopefully successful program and a glimpse into all that is involved in distance education." J.O., Michigan
An Opportunity To Learn About Distance Education - Via Distance Education!
An Interactive Online Workshop
The April/May 2007 session was the final workshop to be offered. After a very successful 4 years of offering the Online Workshop, new priorities/projects are demanding more and more attention and it was time to move on to them. However, due to the many requests that I have received, the workshop materials (PowerPoint presentations, discussion questions, resource links, discussion board, etc., etc.) will be made available - for free - here on this website. This will allow educators, alone or in small groups, to participate in their own self-directed workshop on how to teach at a distance. If you would like to receive an announcement when Teaching At A Distance - Self-Directed is available, please enter your email address in the box below. Joe Levine
