Online teaching is one of the best gigs ever. Will someone get rich doing it? Absolutely not. However, it offers flexibility and a reasonable paycheck. The instructor can do it all from home. There is no driving to work or dressing up in business clothes. The extra time-freedom is tremendous. Shopping and going to the gym become much easier. Making appointments becomes easier. The online instructor can hopefully offer years of industry experience to the students, in conjunction with having the necessary academic credentials for the university. However, it's not for everyone. There is much to do with multiple deadlines that must be promptly and consistently met.
