The Journal of Online Learning and Teaching
Excellent insight and ideas from the Journal of Online Learning and Teaching. A must read for online teachers.
Over the last few years, higher education has been transformed by numerous technologies available for course content delivery. Whereas university instructors once asked, "Should I deliver course content online?" the emphasis has shifted so that instructors are now asking, "Which technology works best for which desired teaching outcome?," "Which technology can I quickly learn?," and "Which technology can I manage (while fulfilling my research and service duties)?" To answer these questions, the authors used and evaluated 10 different online instructional technology tools, analyzing each one's potential application in communication courses to address Angelo's four dimensions of higher learning (declarative, procedural, conditional, and reflective). The tools are compared and contrasted to assist university instructors in making informed decisions about which to use in their courses.
Very helpful analysis of different tools for e-learning and e-teaching.

Foundational and critical. Too many educators feel undervalued and showing genuine gratitude, while simplistic, is truly key. The gratitude shown or given must be meaningful to the recipient, not necessarily the giver. It can change everything - and has - when consistently delivered with sincerity.
