The first article in the series appeared last December. Since then, we have received plenty of feedback from other instructors who are actively engaged in online education. Almost all of them agreed that teaching well online remains a challenging task. In this article, I discussed six specific practices that I have found particularly helpful for online teaching and learning.

Practice 1: Adopt a variety of communication methods
Practice 2: Create a Q&A Discussion Board
Practice 3: Estimate the amount of time taken for each assignment
Practice 4: Ensure timely replies
Practice 5: Synchronize assignments with the Canvas calendar
Practice 6: Reorganize course content
