About the Book

Teaching Online: A Practical Guide is a practical, concise guide for educators teaching online. This updated edition has been fully revamped and reflects important changes that have occurred since the second edition’s publication. A leader in the online field, this best- selling resource maintains its reader friendly tone and offers exceptional practical advice, new teaching examples, faculty interviews, and an updated resource section.

New to this edition:

  • new chapter on how faculty and instructional designers can work collaboratively
  • expanded chapter on Open Educational Resources, copyright, and intellectual property
  • more international relevance, with global examples and interviews with faculty in a wide variety of regions
  • new interactive Companion Website that invites readers to post questions to the author, offers real-life case studies submitted by users, and includes an updated, online version of the resource section.

Focusing on the "how" and "whys" of implementation rather than theory, this text is a must-have resource for anyone teaching online or for students enrolled in Distance Learning and Educational Technology Masters Programs.


"While a necessity for online teaching novices, the book will also be useful to experienced instructors….[it]includes a wealth of examples showing the varied possibilities for online instruction, along with a basic glossary and an extensive guide to Web resources. This book definitely needs to be added to the library of anyone teaching in the online environment….Highly recommended."-CHOICE

"This book should be on the ‘must read’ list of those involved in classroom teaching as well as distance teaching."--Indian Journal of Open Learning
