This practical guide is essential for anyone new to or intimidated by online instruction. Drawing on the expertise of teachers of the humanities who have deep experiences in the online environment, this work explores a variety of areas within the online teaching experience. It discusses the differences between online and face-to-face learning environments and assesses and evaluates best practices in developing and teaching online courses. This volume is not really about the technology, but instead focuses on the ways in which available technologies can be used to enhance teaching in both synchronous and asynchronous forums, and as such it will still be worth the read many years from now—even in the face of rapid technological change. Contributions from faculty members teaching in art education, communication, English, history, social studies education, and interdisciplinary studies departments, as well as directors of writing centers and online education and distance learning programs are included. Essays in this volume will assist instructors, faculty members, and administrators new to the online experience, but who want to learn more about making the transition to online teaching, in navigating this transition gracefully.
