The new Second Edition contains updated and expanded sections on blending, assessment, student retention, course development/design, conferences, awards, copyright, tips and teaching techniques for the online classroom.
Going the Distance: A Handbook for Faculty Who Teach Online provides faculty—full- and part-timers—with the contents of a first-rate teaching workshop for a fraction of the price.
“This is a good starter kit for those new to teaching online. It can also be a good review for those experienced in the online environment but need a refresher or are attempting to solve a problem. Covered are important topical areas such as assessment, technology, guests, and virtual field trips. In addition, course development processes and issues are discussed. Of course, all of this is generalized knowledge that can be adapted to meet the reader’s individual institution’s policies and procedures.”–Amazon.com review
