Second, the Thirsty: I've been researching available adjunct teaching positions at online universities. I know, these are Not The Most Fun things to do, but at this point I need work. (I've also registered with our local temp agencies because it's more likely I'll find a job as a receptionist than as a college teacher, but that's neither here nor there.) The problem is that many of these jobs require prior experience with distance-learning software.
Q: How, exactly, do I get this experience if I'm just going into the online teaching world? Can I get trained to use this stuff someplace? Anybody got any ideas?
