A Collection of Online Teaching Resources
I have pulled together various resources for those making the pivot to
online teaching. These have been culled mostly from the
SIGCSE email list (Special
Interest Group on Computer Science Education), with some additional
information from HASTAC (Humanities, Arts,
Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) and my colleagues
Newest resources come first.

- An interesting comment about the use of videos (from Mark Lewis, Trinity Univ, San Antonio, TX):
I feel compelled to note here that watching videos has to be treated like reading or any other out of class activity. If you want students to do it and to focus on it, you have to assess it. Students, much like their professors, will optimize their time usage. Unless they get really interested in something, they will only do the work that they feel is required to achieve the grade they are aiming for. For things like assignments where the work is to produce what is directly assessed, things are straightforward. However, for anything where the goal is to have the students gain knowledge and the assessment is separate, students will do whatever they feel is needed for the assessment.
