I'm going through the process of qualifying to be an online instructor for a nearby school (already teach traditional brick-and-mortar campus classes) and I'm just curious what people's experience has been. Everything the school gives us is rah-rah, go-go, and every link and resource is supposedly critically important. Any tips on what works, how worthwhile the courses were, what was just busywork and what was really important? I'm used to writing my own syllabi and this institution's approach basically has us executing pre-written course "shells" that we're given. I'm a bit skeptical but trying not to let my doubts prevent me from keeping up with the times, here.
