Online teaching requires faculty to develop skills that range from the mechanics of uploading content to the design of online instruction and student experiences.

To help faculty develop or hone their skills, the Center for Online Learning offers the Teaching Online Institute (TOI), which schedules modules throughout the year that match more than a dozen skill areas.

To learn more about the offerings in general, please visit our periodic table of essential skills.
