How to Transform Your On-Campus Course to Online
Learn how to teach online easily.
A crash course for faculty on how to create an online course using the best practices and without struggle.
I have designed this course to help fellow instructors, specifically those who work as faculty in higher education to help them with online teaching. In the last five years, I have been teaching online courses for four different universities. I also work as a consultant that I train faculty on how to teach online.
