How can we help online teachers excel, and which support services provide excellence in online teaching?
Educational institutions have different requirements, support schemes and wage models for online teaching. This provides opportunities, incentives and boundaries for the actual teaching and workload.

- Prioritize. The reality is that we can't keep up. Find your points of focus and follow those. Think about what type of information will improve your work. How much can you realistically read during a given week? (Hat tip to Alan Levine aka @CogDog.) - Personalize. Decide what you want to know, need to know, and who specifically you want to follow.
