Preparing to teach online

Yang and Cornelius, 2005

This seems useful, but still I'd like to see research comparing student learning across in-the-room and online teaching.

My sense is that online courses are much more likely to present opportunities for slacking (i.e., non-learning), and that correcting for this potential involves a great deal more work online than in a classroom setting.

I'm a huge fan of online support for "wave your arms" courses, but have been underwhelmed by the potential of fully online courses to impart knowledge or develop meaningful dialogue.
