    New technology and tools are transforming learning experiences, creating opportunities that used to only happen in a face-to-face classroom. But building and teaching an online course requires a different approach because what’s worked in the classroom doesn’t necessarily translate online. Teaching an online class is far more complicated than simply recording 60-minute lectures and asking students to watch them.

    In an hour-long #EdShift chat starting at 1 p.m. Eastern/noon Central/10 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday, Oct. 4, we’ll explore what goes into developing an online class, as well as how to manage coursework and student interaction once the class launches. The chat will be moderated by Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who will also be hosting a DigitalEd training on building and teaching online classes on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 1 p.m. Eastern/noon Central/10 a.m. Pacific.

    Guests will include Will Yurman of Penn State University, Gina Martino Dahlia of West Virginia University, Richard Lee of St. Bonaventure University, Stephen Draper of Oklahoma Baptist University, Susan Keith of Rutgers University, Kym Fox of Texas State University, Kate Nash Cunningham of the University of New Mexico and Hemant Shah of UW-Madison.
