The Conversion of a Skeptic: My Journey into Online Teaching, Part I

The Conversion of a Skeptic: My Journey into Online Teaching, Part I | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The changes began to express themselves a number of years ago in the simple reality of plummeting enrollments in each of my courses, sufficient enough to place them in danger of cancellation. My academic specialty and the program in which I teach — Judaic studies — is by nature a "niche" field, perennially challenged by modest enrollment. More recently, however, some other dynamic was clearly at work. The problem was easily enough diagnosed as having to do with an increased student demand for online learning; my program had never offered courses in this format, and I had personally determined never to entertain the idea, even as a remote option.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's one teacher's story about his journey into online teaching.  His first break through is learning how short video lectures might help me connect with his online students.

Future Bright for Online Education
The arguments offered in Jing Liu’s essay run counter to the validation online programs receive from regional accreditation, the U.S. Department of Education and the success students experience as graduates. As someone who has taught online classes since 1999 and managed the online program administration at my campus for 16 years, I am personally aware of the progress we have made, the quality of instruction we do achieve, the access door we have opened wider and the difference we have made in the lives of our students.
