About This Class

Have you been thinking about teaching online? If so, this class will hopefully serve as the motivation you need to get started.  

In this class, we’ll look at the emerging and exciting world of online teaching and why you should consider creating your own classes. This will give you an opportunity to examine your reasons for teaching which can be really helpful – and motivating – as you begin to create your own classes. You’ll get to share your reasons with the class in the project section since it can support your progress to write these down.

We’ll also look at some of the reasons that are not so compelling for teaching online so that you can keep your focus on goals that feel more reasonable and gratifying and will help you stay on track. 

This class can also serve as a refresher for existing teachers who want to be reminded of why they love to teach. 

By the end of this class, you’ll have a clear idea of your motivation for wanting to create an online class. This will help you stay focused, motivated, and on track for the rest of this series that will guide you through all the steps in making an online course. 

I’m excited to see you teach and share your gifts online, and I look forward to seeing you in this class.

Just click the enroll button to join, and I’ll see you soon. Thanks so much!

This class is part of my Online Teacher’s Toolkit Series that discusses all the aspects of creating your online class. Please be sure to check out my other classes in this series!
