This document prepared by Phat Vu is a 4-page distillation of “best practices” and resources for online teaching.   This document was compiled based on faculty discussions, emails, and polls. In a sentence, Phat’s guide points out that the “best practices” of online teaching/learning includes 5 main elements: be available for your students, use intentional design for your course, build community in your course, motivate your students, be flexible, and keep things simple. The document provides more detail on all of those points.
