SoftChalk Teaching Success Stories From The “Godfather” Of Online Science—Part 2

An item from SoftChalk that may be of interest to the K-12 online teachers among my readership, particularly the science ones.  Part one was featured earlier this week (like this past Saturday I think).

2020-godfather-2t-1

Dr. James W. Brown has been developing and teaching online science classes since the early 1990’s. Over the years he has received grants, developed online course materials to address nursing shortages and brought science laboratories into the home to teach science completely online!

Through enthusiasm and team effort, courses were built from the ground up with student engagement and interactivity at the center.

Following up from his first post, Dr. Brown discusses the rising costs of textbooks, utilizing OERs and taking control of your content so you can teach from any location, even a park bench.
