Favorite part of teaching online:

I love teaching online. There are so many teaching opportunities available that seated-classes don’t offer- especially from one’s own office at home. I love the commute and meeting students who live everywhere.  Communication online can be much more rewarding than in seated classes. In discussion forums everyone posts thoughts and many are richer than I would have ever imagined!
