I have the opportunity to teach an internet course this summer but have absolutely no idea what is involved. I have a lot of burning questions, and any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Are these things done by webcam? If not, how do you "teach" the course?
Do colleges usually give the professors software to use at home or do you usually go to campus? (I actually wouldn't mind going to campus).
How do you know students aren't cheating? Or do you generally give all essay assignments and exams?
Does whatever program you use to do all this involve a lot of general know-how? This would be a big concern to me, because although I am generally competent with computers, there is a lot I don't know.
I probably have more questions. But anyone who can help with what I asked so far -- that would be great.
