This book offers a ton of tips and referrals to valuable resources that I didn't know about before. It was the textbook for my instructional technology course and it was a good find.

The Survival Guide is a classic Sept. 6 2011
By Jean Ponder Soto - Published on
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

A Must Have if You Are Considering Teaching Online Aug. 27 2011
By Mary Jane Andrews - Published on
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.

Don't Lose This Book! Dec 9 2013
By David DiDonato - Published on
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.

Excellent book. A great reality check for teachers. Nov. 10 2012
By B Howell - Published on
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.)

Lives up to the title! Feb. 22 2014
By Ellen Scherberth - Published on
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!
