Abstract

More and more, learners are choosing online courses. Adult online enrollments, as a percent of total enrollment, continue to grow, and the proportion of all students taking at least one online course reached 32 percent in 2011 (Allen & Seaman, 2013). The increase in the number of online course enrollments requires additional teachers capable of delivering online content effectively. Smith (2010) described how the nature of online learning has reshaped the essential skills of faculty and indicated that a new pedagogical skill, ruled by instructional design theories and principles, is required of online faculty. Evidence suggests that the existing supply of skilled online instructors is insufficient to meet the demand of online enrollments (Voytecki, Engleman & Jeffs, 2010).
