Where the Hell Do I Start?

The POT Guide to Getting Started Teaching Online

Welcome to Where the Hell Do I Start?

This website is a guided tutorial through using your own pedagogy to design an online class.

The Program for Online Teaching recommends beginning with your own teaching style, rather than jumping into Blackboard or another system and plugging things in.

Beginning with your own pedagogy makes it possible to start where you are comfortable, with your own teaching and learning goals always in mind.

Each section of this tutorial includes a brief explanation, video tutorial, resources, and a self-quiz.

If you are a MiraCosta College instructor, you can claim flex credit for your time by selecting Other Activities, then Reading, Writing and Research, at the flex website. You can document your work with uploaded worksheets or screenshots.
