I have been taking Masters courses online and I love it! I use the Angel network in my classroom (similar to Blackboard), but I would love to teach classes that are completely online. Where do you start? Where does a teacher find an online school to work for?

Do you have any idea where to start your search? Most college level courses require a PhD. I would be satisfied just to teach high school level classes online.

Do a search at Peterson's database of online learning courses. That will give you a list of colleges offering your areas of expertise. (lifelonglearning.com)

You can also go to Chronicle of Higher Education and HigherEdJobs.com
for the job listings. Many departments keep a file of adjuncts handy for emergencies, so it never hurts to mail your cv.

The drawback to jumping into an online course -- all materials need to be prepared ahead, with copyright clearance and accessibility covered. That can be time-consuming.

Each school might use a different CMS, so allow time to set up your course. It usually takes me a day to set up grades, files, discussions, dropboxes, and assignments in the system, with submission times. (Too much time!) But once it's rolling, it feels wonderfully organized.

If you are looking for opportunities to teach K-12 online, check out K12.com. There are virtual schools in many states and they are always looking for well qualified educators for their students.
