TOP REVIEWS FROM FOUNDATIONS OF VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION
This is truly a foundational course so it's ideal for someone who has not taken any courses about teaching online. Administrators would also benefit from this.
Muy buen curso para conocer los fundamentos de la educación virtual. Sin embargo, contiene información detallada sobre la realidad de las escuelas estadounidenses.
This is a relevant course especially at this time. I wish the course would be more diverse. Maybe have information on virtual schools outside the US
Good explanations of material, instructor and instructions are easy to understand. A lot of focus on state/gov't regulations that could be more condensed.
