A Good Time for Online

Online courses typically account for more than half of the summer credits generated at WSU. There are a number of reasons for this. Many students work in the summer to help cover the cost of their education, many go back to their hometowns for the summer, and some are raising children and don’t have steady options for childcare during the summer months. In addition to the student needs and situations that make online courses attractive in the summer, many of our faculty also prefer/require more flexibility during the summer.

When teaching online, good course design and proper conversion to the online mode greatly enhance the learning and teaching experience in the digital classroom. This course conversion process can take a great deal of time and energy, but the payoff is well worth it. If you teach online in the summer and haven't yet taken WeTeach, consider enrolling in an upcoming session. It is a well-established, highly engaging 8-week course that will teach you about developing high-quality online courses and the Quality Matters™ process. Please note that WSU faculty are not charged the course fee to take WeTeach!

Also, take note of these resources for online students to help them achieve success in the digital learning environment and of the option for students to receive online advising from the Warrior Success Center over the summer.
