Welcome to this 20 Day Challenge to Teaching Interactive Online Courses. Each week day for the next few weeks, you will receive in your inbox tips and tricks for teaching online. The tips will be organized to guide you through the first few critical weeks of your course, providing support to ensure the success of you and your students in this online journey.
After taking a year off of my annual January 20 Day Challenges, I thought it was time to create another one. I have a dual goal with this one. In addition to sharing tips with you, my blog audience, I’m also setting up these tips with autoresponders in Mailchimp to allow me to easily provide support to new online faculty teaching online for me or for Andrews University.
