Resources to Help Your Transition to Online Instruction

  1. e-Learning Miami ResourcesIn addition to e-Learning Miami's workshops, Fellows program, and individual consultations, their website is full of information on best practices, available technologies, learning design, and guidelines for transitioning to an online teaching environment.
  2. Teaching Effectively During Times of Disruption — “A detailed Google doc, written by Jenae Cohn and Beth Seltzer — both academic-tech specialists at Stanford University — is geared for Stanford, but there’s a lot there that anyone can use. Their guide is particularly noteworthy for how it breaks down the synchronous-asynchronous distinction, explaining advantages and disadvantages of each and offering guidance about how to use Zoom for virtual meetings” (Miller).
  3. Going Online in a Hurry: What to Do and Where to Start — Michelle Miller explains the top priorities for teachers faced with suddenly going online.
  4. Resources for Just-in-Time Online Teaching — “Derek Bruff, director of the Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt University, has pulled together a lot of useful ed-tech advice under the heading of "just-in-time online teaching." Read this page, in particular, for step-by-step instructions on key aspects of going online fast (the advice is geared toward the Brightspace learning-management system, in particular, but is general enough to apply to other platforms, too)” (Miller).
  5. CGC Community Doc for Online Teaching — An ongoing repository from the Consortium on Graduate Communication that includes resources and annotations.
