Get Started With Self-Paced Digital Teaching

If you are facilitating self-paced (asynchronous) learning, your work will largely happen before and after your students engage in the online content. You will need to get all aspects set up so that students have everything they will need to work through the content at their own pace. Your students will need clear directions, engaging digital materials, and valuable opportunities for practice and processing, as well as a way to receive feedback on their progress.

While students can be successful learning exclusively through a self-paced course, most teachers also try to build in some live video classes or personal check-ins, as well. While these may be optional, they can give students a chance to ask questions, get help, and connect with classmates in real time.

The articles in this collection will guide you through the process of setting up and delivering a self-paced digital-learning experience. You may also want to explore the Get Started With Live Remote Teaching collection, to consider how you can leverage the advantages of each delivery system.
