How Should I Manage My Online Course?

Managing the workload of an online course can be more challenging than managing a face-to-face course. We walk you through an online instructor checklist created at Penn State University. When you have completed it, you will have created an instructor’s course manual that will help you stay organized, manage your workload, and keep your students working toward the learning goals.

How Should I Manage My Online Course?

Managing the workload of an online course can be more challenging than managing a face-to-face course.

In the absence of weekly face-to-face class meetings, online instructors have to work hard to make sure a course is running smoothly and to ensure students are progressing toward course goals while staying engaged in the material.

How can you keep everything organized when teaching online?

This 20 Minute Mentor program, How Should I Manage My Online Course?, will walk you through an online instructor checklist created by Ann Taylor, the Director of the Dutton e-Education Institute, and her colleagues at Penn State University.

When you have completed the online course management checklist, you will have created an instructor’s course manual that will help you stay organized, manage your workload, and keep your students working toward the learning goals.
