Today in the United States, within the online virtual model, the concept of the classroom where students meet, interact with the instructor, and other students, doesn’t exist as it does in the traditional Face-to-Face class room. The instructor cannot see if the student understands the material, is confused, or even is attending class. The instructor must accept a different kind of roll in online Education with the computer as a facilitator connecting the instructor and students with new methods of interactive connectivity to each other and research tools simultaneously. Communication is dependant on written and visual interactions, scheduled, intermittent and ongoing. In this paper I will present a summary of the growth, kinds of disciplines available in online education, the makeup of virtual Instructors and student body; the need to establish and maintain quality online education programs, and basic instructional strategies for online courses.
