- This course is scheduled to begin Monday April 6, 2020.
Welcome to Teaching Online Effectively (TOnE)!
For the next three weeks, we'll dive into some key ideas to help you design your course. Whether you need to put your full course online this summer/fall, or you want to include more online elements in your campus course, we hope that this mini-course provides the information and resources you need.
Another key focus of our time together is to build a Community of Inquiry - a forum where we can share resources, experiences, and ideas about course design.
