does it take more time to teach online?

I was recently asked by a colleague from another institution the following 2 questions.

  1.  From your experience (both personal and working with other faculty), would you say that teaching online takes more time (simple answer requested here).
  2. Are you aware of research that indicates either more, the same, or less time is required to teach online.

My answers:

  1. no. (I think that the design of the course can result in it taking more time- I think that level of online experience and training of the faculty factor into that). It should take no more time to teach online than f2f.
  2. some refs on all sides of the issue : )
