Hello all,


I was wondering if anyone on this site teaches an online Ag course.

Our Ag Dept. was just given the O.K. to run an online course for our Senior students. This class is generally focused on Ag business, SAEs, Job application, and other content related to this area.


So if anyone is teaching an online course, some questions I have for you are:

How often do you have the students check in with you during the week?

How do you hold them accountable for turning in work, participating in discussions, and watching lectures/videos/ reading notes?

What do you use as your host site? I am currently looking into using Schoology for this class.


Also any ideas and opinions are welcomed on this. Is this a path worth going down or will it end up being a huge headache?


Thank you,
