Matthew Cooper, vice president of Thomas Edison State University, said there is a huge difference between converting face-to-face courses into an online format and trying to build courses from scratch. He reminded teachers not to be too obsessed with the complexity of technology, but to choose from a variety of online tools suitable for themselves and students. Cooper pointed out that good communication between teachers and students is more important than making perfect courseware. He suggested that teachers invest more time in discussion areas, course announcements, and homework feedback.
