The Elements of Effective Online Education

July 6, 2020

A question that is coming up more and more often, is how can you make an online course effective? Though my online teaching experience is with code (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Python, SQL, Java) and business, the principles are universal.

The 4 Key Elements of an Online Course:

There are many factors, but first and foremost, you need great teachers. You also need a curriculum designed specifically for online education. This includes bitesized lessons, instant support, heavy use of video, and real-time feedback for the students. There is much more to it, but the above foundational elements are key.

With the StudioWeb platform and curriculum, we’ve put into place 100+ (sometimes) subtle enhancements since we launched in 2011. That cumulatively has had a huge impact.

We have had well over 1 million students use StudioWeb, and both teachers and students are thrilled at how easily they learn how to write code.

About me:
I’ve been producing online courses since 2003 and in 2011 we released StudioWeb, a code teaching platform used by schools and individual learners. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
