Online learning can be used for distance education courses as well as for face-to-face courses. In fact, using online learning to supplement traditional classes may be the most effective way to introduce the topic of online learning and teaching to faculty who have been in the classroom for a number of years. This session will present the format and evaluation for an online mini-course that was developed for the faculty of a college of education at a U.S. university. Highlighted will be the results of an extensive final evaluation that examined computer self-efficacy, attitudes toward distance instruction, and the course itself.
