Looking in the Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice for an article on how to teach online seems a bit counterintuitive.
But in the Spring 2009 issue, there is an interesting article called Medium Matters: Using Technology Logically, Ethically, and Imaginatively.
It’s a basic introduction to online education for teachers. There are hints on how to be personable in email, for example. I like it, though, especially as I am trying to secure an online course. This gives me food for thought.
