Today’s article in Inside Higher Ed entitled: Going the Distance reports:
The American Federation of Teachers report on guidelines for good practice in distance education acknowledges that it takes “anywhere from 66 to 500 percent longer” to prepare an online course than a face-to-face one, and “additional compensation should be provided to faculty to meet the extensive time commitments of distance education.”
Not surprising information. Using technology taken more preparation time than not using technology. Online learning content takes even more time.
Then again, anything worth doing usually takes time.
