    Questions for those who teach for an online college

    How did you find the job?
    How many hours per week is required?
    Is teaching experience required?
    Since a lot of online classes seem fairly automated, what exactly are your responsibilities?
    What is the selection process like?
    Easy to get hired?
    What is the pay?

    I'm a medical doctor and just became a little curious about this after one of my old friends got a part-time job teaching at a community college for fun. I'm pretty busy, but it might be fun to try, if not too time consuming.

    Oops. I totally missed this subforum. Thanks moderator for moving this to the correct forum. After reading a little bit here, I guess most of these questions have already been answered. I guess I still want to know the best way to find these jobs, which jobs/subjects require the least amount of time commitment, and what would a MD qualify someone to teach? A&P, micro, I assume maybe some other biology classes, health sciences, maybe psychology ?

    New User,

    There is a very active Facebook group for online teachers with over 4,600 members. It's called "Make A Living Teaching Online." Should be easy enough to find. It's a treasure trove of info on the topic.
