I may be the digital immigrant lurker in this group. Our school last delivered online courses a few years ago when the technology was glitchier and more expensive. A few faculty members are once again dipping their toes into online discussion components in their courses.

I'm teaching a course on world religions to MDiv students at CRCDS. I have taught it partially on line in the past and this semester it is a hybrid - half the sessions are online, half are in person. Those in person sessions are all site visits to places of worship so in truth the course is virtually all online. I use discussion forums, a glossary, a wiki, links to videos and websites, uploaded documents, blogs as part of the course. My concern this semester is that I don't have any opportunity for face to face conversation with the students because all our in person sessions are field trips. I find the online format challenging as I try to assess what is a reasonable workload and what are appropriate assignments to give in the online classroom.

I am co-teaching a course on the ethics of technology entitled Technology, Ethics, and Society. It is taught within a Master of Educational Technology degree program, with most of the students being K-12 teachers. I prepared an eight-minute movie on this course for those who are interested. It is available on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oxHaHAcRzs

I hope that it is of interest to others and will add to the conversation and maybe inspire others to offer similar courses.
