There is new meaning and undefined rules to the concept of online teaching due to the schedules and amount of time online teachers maintain daily. Online teachers spend much of their scheduled office hours (in-hours) completing telephone calls, voicemails, e-mails, instructing, creating curriculum and grading. This does not appear vastly different from the responsibilities of a classroom teacher in a face-to-face environment. However, it has become apparent through this qualitative research study that online teachers have a great number of students ranging from 400 to 1,100 and have to spend personal time (out-hours) grading and e-mailing to attend to each individual student. Online teachers are also expected to attend in-service meetings (in-service), which are normally completed during out side office hours (out-hours.) The rules for the online teacher are still being redefined to accommodate the issues of time and scheduling.
