Topic A10: Creating An Effective Online Syllabus - Additional Resources

Below are online resources which may help you in preparation. Take a moment to visit each. If you find a resource particularly helpful, remember to bookmark that page to make it easier to return to it at a later time.


Managing time: Developing Effective Online Organization

Simon, M. (2000).

In K. White & B. Weight (Eds.), The online teaching guide: A handbook of attitudes, strategies, and techniques for the virtual classroom (pp.73-82). Boston: Allyn and Bacon.

A good discussion of the elements which affect good time management in online courses, with examples to consider using in your own syllabus for assigning “due dates” to various learning activities and assignments in an online course.

Lessons from the Cyberspace Classroom: The Realities of Online Teaching

R. M. Paloff & K. Pratt. (2000). San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.

Interesting text on issues from learning styles to working with problem students in the virtual classroom. Of particular interest are the samples of an online and onground syllabus presented in pages 165-176, although you are left to draw your own conclusions/analysis; sample screens of online syllabi, pp. 85 and 181.
