    Faculty Pay for Online Courses

    I am curious what schools are paying professors.
    Where you teach what is the pay scale for online courses ad the BA/MA/Doctoral level

    Also wonder what part time adjunct make at a state school on campus for teaching 1-2 courses.

    I looked back in about 5 pages of threads and only found a UofP payscale posted, but not other schools.

    I know Columbia pay per student enrolled. Any other schools do this?

    You think online professors actually get paid?

    I recall posting my 7 gigs not too long ago.
    Depending on length and class size, mine are $900 (5 weeks, 10 students) and $2,200 (8 weeks, 20 students).

    Is it just me or is it difficult for regular people to understand these compensation packages?
    I am used to either being paid salary or hourly. Too bad they don't just pay hourly for this work because its hard to determine what one's net hourly rate of compensation is with these numbers.

    I was told 15 years ago that MCSE instructors make $80 per hour. Where are those jobs?

    $50,000, which is what many doctoral programs cost all told, divided by the fifty dollar difference Tireman described between what MAs and PhDs are paid to teach at that school per course.

    (But beware of taking what I said too seriously here.)

    It takes about 8 hrs a week to teach a course that pay $1200 bucks for a period of 6 weeks at Walden. This is about $25 bucks per hour. Not bad for a PhD holder.

    Some people take as many courses as they can and then they subcontract to teachers in India. This means that I get $1200 bucks to teach a course in the US and pay $500 to a PhD from ITT in India to teach the class. I still need to manage the person in India but maybe only one hour a week so that is $87dlls an hour.

    This model works better. I can teach multiple classes and, since I have taught the same classes over the years, I can move pretty quickly with quality help, quality responses, and quality assignment feedback.
