Getting Started

I’ve been assigned to teach my first online course: what should I do?

Before you teach an online course, it is strongly recommended that you complete the Fundamentals of Online Instruction, a 5-module online course offered by UNH Academic Technology which is designed to introduce faculty to the best practices of designing and teaching online courses. To learn more, contact: gary [dot] cilley [at] unh [dot] edu

2-3 months should provide adequate time to prepare your online course, particularly if you have taught the course before or have already developed some portion of the course content.

Use the development timeline as a guide for keeping your course development on track.  Your instructional designer can talk you through the steps of the process.
