We are the Program for Online Teaching, a group of volunteer faculty helping other faculty teach better online.

Our focus is on pedagogy as the guiding force for using technologies for teaching.

Many of us are from MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California. MiraCostans may access the Teaching/Technology Innovations Center for technical help, resources, news and more.

Diigo’s new Outliner feature allows you to create pages of bookmarks. Here Lisa does so for student resources:

This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the perspectives of learning and teaching using the Canvas learning management system. Participants will learn how the system works through a series of practice activities, and explore how to facilitate contact with students, communicate expectations, encourage active learning, design assignments, and create good navigation. Additionally, participants will be introduced to basic LMS design principles tailored to Canvas.
