Online learning environments: The experiences of prospective teachers
Since 2005 many schools in the K-12 system have increased their offering of online courses (Watson, Gemin, & Ryan, 2008). This study examined the experiences of 19 pre-service teachers from one Ontario Faculty of Education who were enrolled in a course designed to teach effective online teaching skills. Topics covered by the course included designing and delivering online course content and the ethics of online teaching. The course itself was delivered using a blended approach with both online and face-to-face class sessions and ran from September to December in the fall of 2007.
