Hello to all distinguished scholars on the board. Don't know if anyone is familiar with box-top PhD Dani Babb's book, "Make Money Teaching Online," but a recent edition came out that says you too can STILL make $100k+ teaching online. Trying to see if anyone is doing this, with specific emphasis on my addition of "half-ass teaching," since that seems to be the only way you can "teach" 60+ classes a year. Going to be honest, at this stage, I've seen enough shoddy and outright lazy behavior from tenured profs and distinguished researchers in brick & mortar academia at my R1 grad school that I'm ready for my "semi-free lunch" and I would just love for some advice on how to get there. I'm a spoiled brat, so I'm looking for classes that are already created that I only have to facilitate. I don't want any synchronous activities: I certainly don't want to live chat with the brain-dead students of today. Looking at other online adjuncts, the biggest problem they have seems to be glorying over catching students cheating and causing problems and work for their coworkers by turning them in. The students frequently say that this is what they have done in other classes and/or their other teachers didn't grade them as hard, and I have no doubt believing this since college is definitely a "pay to play" affair nowadays. I promise no grades below C from me! Now before some of you PhDs with bogus, fluffy research areas jump down my throat, I'm not clever enough to have come up with this on my own. There are already PLENTY of people doing this, and you'll find a plethora of posts all over the web going years back with professors teaching 60+ classes saying they get by working barely 30 hours a week and are clocking in $50-$100+ in hourly rates or, better yet, have some poor putz PhD from an Indian Institute of Technology doing the bulk of the work. Also, before anyone asks, no, doing the teaching "on your own" by, for example, using a rubric where you check boxes to generate feedback is just an exercise in futility. I have more respect for the person who sees the system for the joke that it is than someone who thinks their garbled feedback they spent less than one minute generating is of any value. Anyway, curious to see what sort of feedback the academy has on this. I know a few of you bloodsuckers are out there operating like this, and I bow at your brilliance. If you don't want to post for all to see, just send me a PM so I can flatter you personally at your intelligence in beating the system.
