Marshall University Online encourages all faculty to use MUOnLine as a supplement to a traditional class especially as a locale for copyright protected materials, sensitive student data, and official MU communication regarding course materials between and among students. To get started, please visit our Course Request page.
MUOnLine gives you a number of different options such as e-mail, discussion boards, journals or blogs, virtual classrooms, rubrics, outcomes assessment tools, audio and video capabilities with Wimba, and real time Chat within or among courses using MUOnLine’s chat tool or Pronto.
MUOnLine suggests that you use the same evaluation methods for assignments and projects as you would for out of class assignments that your students submit to a traditional class. Some online instructors also require the use of proctors for assignments or assessments.
The skills necessary to manage an online course are minimal: extensive technical expertise is not required, but you should be familiar with computers and be able to navigate the internet. If you can browse the Web, enter a Web address, locate and open files on your computer, and enter text into Web-based forms, you should not have any trouble teaching an online course. MUOnLine provides context-sensitive online help. If you would like to view our sample course for faculty, please click here.
The Faculty Development Committee for Online and Multimedia Instruction coordinates a variety of professional development services for online instructors. Services include MUOnLine workshops and opportunities for one-on-one technical help. Visit Faculty Support for more information.
