Some of these were written with the intent of a fully online course, while the more recent are specific to remote teaching during this world-wide emergency situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Reach out to me if you have any questions. I noticed that 5K visitors came to my site in August of 2020! I hope that you found useful information.

In closing, as an instructional designer for remote and fully online courses, I’m collaborating with instructors and graduate student teaching assistants in the course design and maintenance of their courses. I’ve designed online courses for a decade and remote course going on this second year of the pandemic. This is my number one priority, and one that I’m so grateful to have. My secondary priority is educational research projects. These, along with regular life activities and pandemic interruptions, have left me with little time to blog. In the past decade, I’d blog at least once a month if not more. I just wanted to let my readers know that I’m here for you and will pick up my momentum whenever I get a chance. For now, I have over 200 blogs on this site and gladly share my expertise with you. I wish you all the best during this unprecedented crisis.

Stay safe!
