Here's a link to an article that my colleague and I wrote that will soon be published in the online journal Open Words.
Intended Use: I want you to think of me as your colleague, as a resource, and as support. I want you to be the best you can be, and give you tools that you can carry with you to make you more successful in whatever future career you have.
How to Assemble: The best way to keep my head from exploding is to be actively engaged in our discussions and interactions. Unfortunately, I think most people think online classes should be about just getting a ding from the professor with directions on how to read/write something up and then dropping the work in a dropbox somewhere. We can do all the things we would do in a F2F course, and I always need to interact with my students. You've all been in classes where even if you were in the traditional F2F environment, there wasn't any interaction going on :)
