Larry Ragan, Director of Faculty development at Penn State’s World Campus has put his flip camcorder to good use over the past few months, cornering various ‘experts’, practitioners and generally experienced online teachers. He  asked each to describe one core competency for successful online teaching.

He has uploaded about 30 of these 1-3 minute videos to YouTube, including my own contribution COTS – Terry Anderson
