Four Ways To Be More Productive Teaching Your Next Online Course

Everyone is amped up at the beginning of an online course, and you probably feel like this is going to be the time when you're the most organized. But as soon as the class begins and work starts flowing in, it's easy to feel overwhelmed.

These four tips are what help us at Talance keep courses moving smoothly and make each subsequent class even easier.

Questions to Ask Learners Before Starting a Course

After months of planning, designing and working, you're ready to offer your first online course. It's been a detailed process that involved buy-in from administrators and department heads, and training for your staff. You've got the technology set up and everything has been tested, re-tested and is as close to perfect as it's going to be. Your team is without a doubt ready to make the leap to computer-based training.

But are your learners?

Combating E-learning Slackers

Anyone who has facilitated an online course knows the biggest challenge isn't grading assignments or figuring out how to use the discussion forums. It's engaging learners. E-learning is a mixed bag of ages and learning styles, and the challenge for instructors is helping students get the most from a course as possible. Ability with technology has less to do with success in an online course as you may think.
