It is possible to earn 100K per year working full time as an online adjunct (people are doing it). Some of the strategies include: 1. Work for several institutions simultaneously. 2. Try to teach as many sections of the same course as possible. 3. Work for institutions that use condensed schedules (5-11 weeks). 4. Become proficient in the use of the most popular learning management systems (e.g. Blackboard, Blackboard CE/Vista, Angel, Desire2Learn, Moodle, eCollege). 5. Develop several courses ahead of time and outside the learning management system, so they can be "plugged in" on short notice (sometimes, you are hired at the last minute and developing a course while you are teaching it takes a ton of time). 6. Maintain question/feedback/FAQ "banks" with your most popular responses, so that you can cut & paste, rather thantype the same thing multiple times. 7. Learn to set up your course to eliminate redunancies and duplicated efforts 8. Make your instructions, your expectations, your assignments and grading policies cystal clear (lack of clarity in writing is one of the most common problem that we find in online instructors). 9. Use rubrics to insure consistent grading. 10. Plan to spend a FULL work week (go into each class daily or every other day to check assignments, participate in discussion forums, grade, answer questions, provide feedback,etc.) 11. Do not skimp on the above activities. Those instructors who plan on short-changing their students by never checking their courses, providing no feedback, never participatingin discussions, etc., get bad reputations and will be replaced by faculty who will want to do a good job for students. 12. Since school schedules tend to overlap, those who are full-time adjuncts tend not to take many vacations (or they take "working" vacations).
