11 Time-saving Tips for Teaching Online
Do you feel teaching online is more time-consuming than you expected? Errol Craig Sull, who teaches English composition for Excelsior College, shared some interesting tips on the August '06 issue of Online Cl@ssroom.
- Always keep a hard copy of your online grades to avoid the possible technical difficulties.
- Keep copies of all substantive student emails, papers, etc. you might just need it sometimes.
- Remind your students to use the Internet for research. Build up their research skills, and get yourself fewer questions.
- Always reach out to students for additional resources. Encourage the students to build up the course with you together.
- Keep an excuse file to tell the true ones from the false ones, and to track the students’ attendance.
- Make editing/correcting templates, so by copying and pasting, you save the trouble of typing common comments repeatedly.
- Make use of free electronic greeting cards to help with student rapport, and let the students know you are there!
- Keep the best examples of student work for the future students. The students would love to see a peer’s successful project.
- Look over your emails waiting to be sent at least twice before sending them to avoid the errors.
- Play student for one day prior to the beginning of a new class—double check your course much more effectively from a student’s perspective.
- Always look at your actions in the course as both instructor and student for same reason as above.
