Teaching & Learning
This section of the site includes resources and instruction for improving your teaching practice and supports for distance learning in various modalities.
Course Design: A good course begins with planning. This section will teach you how to design a course for any instructional modality, whether face-to-face, hybrid, videoconference, or online.
ITV vs Videoconferencing: They both involve students at a TV screen, but they really are very different teaching and learning modalities. What's the same? What's different? How do you make the best use of each modality?
Teaching with Videoconferencing: This guide to teaching with videoconference is a complete reference for making the best use of the videoconference format when teaching a distance course.
Teaching with Interactive Television (ITV): This classic distance learning technology is still in widespread use throughout the University of Maine System. What is it and how do you teach in this format?
Community Engagement Toolkit: If you want to include service learning and civic engagement in your distance classes, this toolkit will show you how and provides a host of resources to support your work.
