Novice and experienced educators who have considered moving some or all of
their language courses online will find this text an invaluable starting
point and resource throughout the process. In non-technical prose with
emphasis throughout on excellence in pedagogical practice, the text takes
both the new and experienced language instructor through the nuts and bolts
of online teaching practices and uses multiple examples of online
instructional conversations to illustrate these practices. Teaching in
asynchronous written, asynchronous aural, synchronous written, synchronous
aural and combinations of these environments are discussed and exemplary
