Moving a course you designed for face-to-face delivery to an online environment undoubtedly poses certain challenges, not least of all the question of how to communicate clearly to students how they will be expected to interact with your new course materials and/or new modes of communication. Some aspects of your course may remain unchanged; others, however, will have to adjust to accommodate the new ways in which students will be interacting with you and with each other.
