Depending on the class the level of technology support that the instructor is asked to give can be overwhelming. It is importatnt that the instructor has someone to go to who is a technology expert when they need help.

Organization, communication, management of workload, information and time as well as following principles of good practice are the key to being successful in an online environment.

Its important to have a FATQ section and reduce distractions by turning e-mail alert when working.

I love the idea of lookng at other aspects of online teaching. t's not just delivering instruction, that's jut a small part of the work.  I love that the class fouses on time mangment and that time doesn't necessarilty translate across mediums.  We have to manage that translation or you will get overwhelmed.  I especailly appreciated the last section of support for Instructors and making sure that Professional Development is a priority.

The workload for a manager is heavy so staying focused, setting priorities and remaining on task i key.
