Can anyone recommend any faculty facing books or articles regarding best practices in developing and delivering synchronous online courses? I'm familiar with "getting started" books I'd recommend to new faculty for asynch practice, but we're moving in a slightly different direction in a pilot program that relies heavily on web conferencing as the delivery mode. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am interested in the synchronous online delivery method as well. I really appreciate if you share your findings.


Thank you.

Have you looked at oNACOL's National Stadards of Quality? It's focused on K12, but really applies to a lot of postsecondary as well.
