The ABC’s of Online Teaching

 by Dorothy Kropf

New online teachers, one way or another, find themselves stuck in their online classrooms.  Sometimes this happens in such opportune times, when we are in the middle of downloading content or creating modules.  Most Literature teachers have a great habit of teaching the vocabularies to the students first before assigning a reading material that contains those vocabularies.  That makes sense – a whole lot of sense.  This is why I compiled a list of resources from vocabularies to articles, mostly from excellent colleges and universities, in order to get us all acquainted with the online classroom lingo.  By learning the basic vocabulary, we can be more prepared into diving into our online classrooms to interactive lectures, quality assessments, and many other activities that online teachers have to remember before creating an online class.  I hope this helps every individual who reads this.  The links truly helped me.

This is a great read before diving into your LMS to download your course content and create announcements and determine which assessment tools you can use, after you build a tab and create content folders where your course content will be.

If you think this sentence is ridiculous, that’s exactly how I felt and that’s how some of the  “HOW TO” sites are written in the web.
