Basic Student Needs

First, your students will need to access readings and course materials. Second, they will have to submit assignments and receive feedback on their work. They also will need a way to send you questions, and they will need to know when and how you will respond to them.

Basic Instructor Needs

You need to deliver your content, for the lack of a better term, to your students, and to communicate with them. There are many types of necessary communication in this situation. Students need to know what to do, how you want them to do it, how to submit it to you and how to get your feedback on their work.

Student Work Load

While planning the course don‘t forget that when transitioning to online teaching and learning, workload increases for both instructors and students. Therefore, it is important to keep that in mind in mind when planning duration of classes and amount of individual work for students.
