About the Course

Are you an educator? Have you ever wanted to understand more about how to design your class to make better use of educational technology – whether fully online or in blended contexts? Would you like to learn from those who have extensive practical experience with online technologies? The Learning to Teach Online (LTTO) MOOC will help you develop a working understanding of successful online teaching strategies that you can apply in your own practice. The course is based upon the multi award winning open educational resource developed by Dr Simon McIntyre and Karin Watson. Integrating online technologies into your teaching can be a challenging prospect, and it can be difficult to know how to approach it effectively for the benefit of both students and yourself. No one knows your own content and teaching strengths better than you, and the “one size fits all” formula doesn’t always suit everyone. No matter what type of technology you are interested in exploring or your level of experience, this course will help you draw on your teaching strengths and find the approach that is right for you, your students and your educational context. This course will guide you through your journey of understanding how online technologies can enhance your course design. You will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of effective online teaching practices and their relationship to the use of different technologies. You will also be encouraged to progressively design and reflect upon your own online learning activity, assessment or resource for use in your own class if you choose to undertake the course assignments....

It was an awesome experience for me in improving, especially my teaching skills to a new paradigm, I learned and benefited immensely from the course, as the course design is meticulously well planned.

If a person takes the time to read all of the attached pdfs and website you can get quite a detailed knowledge of this topic. The course did a very good job of mirroring the principles that it taught.

The videos with interviews with teachers who have integrated technology in their courses are interesting, but pdf. files provide basic information only. "Personalized" links are not really personalized at all. The lists seem to be compiled based on some keyword search without anybody checking what exactly those articles are about. I had selected EFL as my interest area and I was recommended an article which discusses how students use electronic dictionaries in the classroom. Yes, it's technology, but it has nothing to do with online learning. In addition, many links simply do not work. I think the course can serve as a "reminder" about what are some issues to consider when integrating new technology, but no, it will not help you learn how to teach online. I am glad I did not opt for a certificate. I do not know what that certificate would be for.

An average resource that includes a wide variety information, case studies, and relevant pedagogical aspects for how to best incorporate technology into the classroom. However, the course could use an update as content is "old" from a 2021 online classroom perspective. Also, I found myself torn as to whether it was a strength or weakness that the course content targets a large range of people within the field of education yet relies on peer reviews for graded assignments. Consider your current level of teaching effort and style because if you are a confident educator already incorporating technology into your classroom, your time might be better spent in online tutorials of new programs you hope to use to enhance learning.
