Praise for The Online Teaching Survival Guide

"At a time when resources for training faculty to teach online are scarce, Judith Boettcher and Rita-Marie Conrad have presented a must-read for all instructors new to online teaching. By tying best practices to the natural rhythms of a course as it unfolds, instructors will know what to do when and what to expect. The book is a life raft in what can be perceived as turbulent and uncharted waters."
Rena M. Palloff and Keith Pratt, program directors and faculty, Teaching in the Virtual Classroom Program, Fielding Graduate University

"Developed from years of experience supporting online faculty, Judith Boettcher and Rita-Marie Conrad's book provides practical tips and checklists that should especially help those new to online teaching hit the ground running."
Karen Swan, Stukel Distinguished Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Illinois Springfield

"This book blends a fine synthesis of research findings with plenty of practical advice. This book should be especially valuable for faculty teaching their first or second course online. But any instructor, no matter how experienced, is likely to find valuable insights and techniques."
Stephen C. Ehrmann, director, Flashlight Program for the Study and Improvement of Educational Uses of Technology; vice president, The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Group

5.0 out of 5 stars The Survival Guide is a classic Sept. 6 2011
By Jean Ponder Soto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Online Teaching and Survival Guide by Judith V. Boettcher and Rita-Marie Conrad is an indispensible guide for online teaching. As promised in the subtitle, the book offers "Simple and Practical Pedagogical Tips," but with a depth and breath that make it a classic.
I was the instructor at Santa Clara University for a faculty online class on how to teach blended and online courses. The Media Services staff selected Boettcher and Conrad's book as our class text.
We used the authors' insights into the stages of optimal online class development and the Ten Core Learning Principles as the foundation and structure for our class. The book is organized so that auxiliary tips can easily be referenced from the core principles and class stages. This organization brings the central processes of online teaching to the forefront; yet it allows for other important information to be integrated into the core without the reader being overwhelmed by the amount of helpful material.
The faculty who were class participants unanimously praised Boettcher and Conrad's book. Some said they were so inspired by the authors' sound and effective pedagogy that they used it to create better face-to-face classes. I would recommend this book without qualification to beginning as well as experienced online instructors. By Jean Ponder Soto

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have if You Are Considering Teaching Online Aug. 27 2011
By Mary Jane Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book if you are new to teaching online. The "best practices" section is very thorough and provides detailed examples of how to implement them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Lose This Book! Dec 9 2013
By David DiDonato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are constructing your very first on-line class, like I am currently doing, then this book is your "Bible". It is very thorough in both its scope and sequence -- an absolute must for the fledgling online instructor. Especially important is what Boettcher and Conrad do with "Building Community," which is the core of any well-designed and administered asynchronous online class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. A great reality check for teachers. Nov. 10 2012
By B Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very thorough in laying out the many dimensions of online teaching, and how to navigate through them. The authors are systematic and clear. They make no bones about what a large undertaking an online class is for the teacher, but at least they give a lot of help toward doing it. Now that I've taught several online courses, I can testify that the authors are not overstating the amount of work involved for the teacher: at least 5 times as much as for an in-person course, I'd say. And I'm not even doing everything that they recommend in the book!

The book does tend to get a bit overly academic sometimes. One simply must skim through those parts.

BTW, I initiated some contact with the authors after I got into this book. They both were highly approachable, and they helped me greatly with some resource suggestions.

All in all, an excellent book from excellent authors. I haven't seen any that match it. (BTW, at the same time I purchased Making the Move to eLearning by Lehmann & Chamberlin. I'd give that one a miss. It wasn't specific enough for my needs.)

By Ellen Scherberth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this as the textbook to an online course, and let me tell you, it certainly lives up to it's title! Boettcher and Conrad patiently take the reader through every phase of an online course, offering helpful tips and great resources along the way. Do not hesitate to purchase this book, whether you have 20+ years of teaching experience or are new to all of it - you will not be disappointed!
