    I am searching for materials to make my online class as engaging and helpful as possible.  I just wanted to share a few excellent resources.  If anyone else would like to add basic resources, please do!

    Online resource for students to explore
    Lifewire.com
    has basic info about so many topics, including google docs or other tools - you can use it in many ways, but I will definitely give it to students as a resource that they can explore on their own as well


    Books
    Darby 2019   Small Teaching Online
    Boettcher and Conrad 2016  Online Teaching Survival Guide

    Video
    The video below covers the basics about how to prepare for a Zoom class and includes explanations for the importance of the ideas he presents  -- saves me from having to do it myself:)
