Finishing Up Week 1
Hi Everyone,

I'm thrilled to see your level of participation in Foundations of Virtual Instruction so far. What a great opportunity you have to learn from the expertise of our fellow participants! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the group! We now have over 6,000 learners in our course.

Here are some things that happened so far this week:
You've had an opportunity to define Virtual Education to set the foundation for the rest of our course.
We've started discussing how and why Virtual Education has evolved, perhaps to provide learning environments for the "odd man out" as Holly stated, to keep up with the changing technology as Gloria shared, and/or perhaps to explore more cost-effective models (thanks to Marina for a great summarizing post). What do you think?
In Week 1 Prompt #3, many of you have shared international virtual education programs so we can see how virtual learning exists across the world.
If you've joined us a little late, no worries -welcome! Make sure to review the syllabus about important due dates and deadlines.

Note about resources: You'll hear reference to a Google site in our material. While you can still access the site with this link, we are using the Resources page going forward instead of the Google site. Some links on the Google site might be outdated and not all participants are able to access it, so we're using Coursera instead.

If you are using Twitter during this course, use #FOVIMOOC.

Enjoy the rest of week 1!

Welcome to Foundations of Virtual Instruction!
Welcome to Foundations of Virtual Instruction!

Today we begin our 5-week course that covers the history of virtual learning, technologies, transitioning from the classroom to the blended or fully virtual environment, topics in equity, access, and the law, and considering the future and where you fit in virtual education.

I hope you'll find our course page on Coursera easy to navigate. When you log in, you'll see announcements that have been posted. Click on the navigation bar on the left side of the page to view all the course pages. I recommend you start by viewing the syllabus to get an overview of the course and its format.

We will focus in on one key area each week, but all of the content is available for you to explore right now. This will help you get a better idea of what the course is like and give you the ability to go through the materials at your own pace and in any order you'd like.

I recommend working through the material one week at a time, but you do have until the end of the course to complete each of the five quizzes: August 9, 2015 at 11:55 pm PST. There is a maximum of three attempts permitted for the quizzes and feedback is immediately provided. Please be aware that the correct answers for the final quiz (Quiz 5) will be available after the due date has passed. There is one assignment, due in week 3, and a peer-assessment phase in week 4. More information about the assignment can be found in the Peer Assignment page. Be sure to read the syllabus very carefully and make note of due dates.

We will have one live, synchronous event in this course. A Google Hangout will take place during Week 3 of the course, on Wednesday July 22nd at 7:30 pm PST. I'll be interviewing a virtual teacher and if you attend live you can pose questions as well. I will share a link to a recording after the session as well.

I hope you enjoy this course and take advantage of the material and discussions with your colleagues. If you have any questions or suggestions for us, please do not hesitate to post in the discussion forum. Thank you!

Welcome and I'll "see" you online!

Foundations of Virtual Instruction
Hello Virtual Learners!

The start date of Foundations of Virtual Instruction is just a few days away: Monday, July 6th at 8 am PST.

In preparation for the course, think about what will help you succeed in an online virtual environment, especially for this course. We recommend spending an hour of quiet, uninterrupted time every day at your computer, working on the class. You will need this time to review class announcements, watch the video lectures, complete the weekly quizzes, and work on the course assignment.

Also, begin thinking about your own experience with virtual education. In week one we will explore the history of virtual education, cover definitions of terms, and look at current and evolving models of virtual education. My favorite material comes in the second and third weeks as we look at the exciting technologies available for real time instruction and discussions, and what it takes to transition from the traditional classroom to the blended or fully virtual environment.

There are two textbooks that I recommend to enrich your understanding of the course material. If you choose to obtain one or both, there will be a reading guide available on the course page. NOTE: these books are recommended, but not required:

• Ko, S. and Rossen, S (2010). Teaching Online: A practical Guide, 3rd Edition (ISBN 0415997267)

• Rice, K. (2011). Making the Move to K-12 Online Teaching (ISBN 978-0-132-10761-7)

I’m working on putting the finishing touches on the course, and I look forward to it beginning! 


Cindy Carbajal, Instructor

We need to be able to put in announcements where the newest one is seen first and so forth.
Updated Syllabus Help Center

This course meets asynchronously online from July 6, 2015 to August 9, 2015. Most of the materials will be released on July 6th, so you are welcome to work through the course at any pace you wish.

Course Description

This course introduces teachers to virtual instruction. We will cover fundamental knowledge needed by teachers to succeed in a technology-dependent, instructional environment. Students will explore the history of online learning and understand how a variety of delivery models are evolving in the k-12 environment, ranging from completely online to hybrid or blended classrooms. Together we will explore how the programs work and who they serve, address basic equity issues, access and school funding, as well as ethical and legal issues that support and challenge these models. Upon completion of this course, you will understand what it takes to transition from teaching in the classroom to providing virtual instruction. This is the first of a four course series.
