  • 4. Wrap-up
            • There is a significant and positive correlation between the quantity and quality of interaction with the instructor and the satisfaction of the student and their reported learning.
            • The more time faculty spend on developing their online course (120+ hours average), and the more complete it is on the first day of the course, the more satisfied the instructor is in general with online teaching and learning.
            • Faculty with lower technical skills are more satisfied.
            • Developing and teaching an online course will transform how you teach in the classroom.

            • 60% of our students at any given time are taking an online course for the first or second time.
            • Full online students shouldn’t have to pay parking fees.
