Abstract: Over the years, online educators have learned a great deal about what works and doesn’t work when designing and facilitating online courses. During the past few years, we have asked experienced online educators to share their lessons learned about teaching online, and have compiled a list of these lessons for use when working with colleagues new to online-course design and facilitation, and with our students learning to be eLearning specialists. In this session, we will present the lessons learned that experienced online educators have shared with us, share the themes resulting from our analysis, and discuss the ramifications of the themes and how they can be used to enhance the design and facilitation of online courses.
