Perhaps you have a special skill, talent, or knowledge-base that you want to share with others, and maybe you’ve heard that teaching online courses can make you a little extra money. The resources below will help you discover how to combine both what you have to offer and what you wish to gain by guiding you through creating and establishing an online course. No matter what age of student, subject you want to teach, or size of the class, you will find resources and information to bring your class online.

Kids love having the opportunity to learn online but it’s not merely the medium or the technology that students enjoy. At the recent iNacol Virtual Schools Symposium I listened to high school students who have experience learning this way as well as teachers who have experience with these students, share some advice for making this type of learning even better.
Here is their advice as well as suggestions for tools that teachers can use to heed this advice.

Robin Good: For Windows PC users ActivePresenter may prove to be an interesting alternative, with lots of useful features at a price that can't be beaten.
And when you want more options, like extra export formats, or the ability to produce PowerPoint presentation as final output, the Standard and Pro editions come to the rescue.
With ActivePresenter, not only you can record your computer screen along with your own audio narration, but you can also capture screenshots automatically with mouse clicks or key presses and
automatically generate appropriate annotations for each action.
Even the free version has no watermarks or time limitations.
Other features include:
- Attractive callouts
- Annotations for explaining each action
- Make it interactive by adding application simulations, branching scenarios, and quizzes
Three editions available:
- Free Edition: Can create video (AVI, MP4, WMV, WebM)
