Step by step, this accelerated course prepares you to teach online.

Developing and Teaching an Online Course is your surest path to online teaching success. This content-rich, 20- to 25-hour Magna Online Course provides core principles and best practices in online teaching – to get you up and running fast, without costly and frustrating false starts.

Presented in four units, the course delivers all-new content from a single presenter—Dr. Brian Udermann, director of online education at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and a 15-year veteran of the online classroom.

First, you’ll get a look at the current state of online education, and the fundamental differences between online and face-to-face teaching.

Next, you’ll learn how to transition to the online classroom while retaining the sense of community a face-to-face classroom provides. You’ll get invaluable guidance on course development – from using backward design, to developing sound course structure and navigation, to creating a comprehensive syllabus.

From there, you’ll discover the best way to run your courses: how to establish your classroom “presence”, use online discussions effectively, administer assessments, and provide feedback.

You’ll be introduced to a variety of technology tools, and you’ll learn how to employ them with purpose. You’ll see how to use your LMS to your advantage, how to use video confidently, and how to stay attuned to ADA compliance requirements.

The course includes video content supplemented by worksheets, assessments (including a final one), reflection questions, and transcripts. It is asynchronous: You can start and stop whenever you like, and learn at your own pace.
