An ever-growing list of informational resources related to online teaching that just didn't fit anywhere else. Do you have a suggestion for a resource? Contact Glenn Pillsbury.

QOLT Self-Assessment – QOLT is a self-assessment tool for online course design that was created by the CSU Chancellor's Office.  It breaks down the design of an online course into 10 sections comprising 54 "objectives", or things that mark a successful online course design.  Users score their own course on each of the objectives (though some might not applicable to every course) on a 3-point scale.  For a quicker approach to QOLT, download QOLT Lite: 10 Steps to Building a Great Online Course (PDF).

Online Video Websites – Go beyond YouTube. This page lists dozens of sites that stream films and other videos for free, all with copyright taken care of.

XanEdu Online Coursepacks – Simply posting PDF readings for students to download is most likely a violation of copyright. The CSU Stanislaus bookstore recommends creating an online course reader with this company.

How to Create Better Multiple Choice Questions – Online exams don't need to be inviting to cheaters in order to be automatically graded. The solution: write better multiple choice or other objective types of questions.
