The goal of
teaching online is fundamentally the same as teaching face-to-face:
facilitating the learning of all
students to the greatest extent possible. This book differs from other books on
online teaching in that, in the process of offering guidance on course design
and planning, developing outcomes and appropriate engaging activities, managing
the workload and assessment, the authors pay explicit attention throughout to
the distinct and diverse needs of students and offer effective strategies to
accommodate them in a comprehensive and inclusive way by using the principles
of Universal Design for Learning.

By following those
principles from the outset when planning a course, all students will benefit,
and most particularly those whom the research shows have the greatest achievement
gaps when taking online courses -- males, first generation and low income
students, those from underrepresented minority groups, the academically
underprepared, students with disabilities, and those with limited online access
or lacking readiness for online learning.

Beyond good
planning and design, Kelly and Zakrajsek offer ideas for creating inclusive
course environments and activities, such as using culturally appropriate content
and making it accessible in multiple formats. They also share methods to foster
faculty-learner interaction and increase personal connections with students,
and among students, through group activities or learning communities, which are
so critical to motivation and success.

Faculty new to
online teaching as well as more experienced readers will find a wealth of
practical guidance on developing and honing both fully online and blended
courses and, as importantly, a wealth of proven ideas to help the new
generation of students with diverse needs to succeed.
