Online courses are growing in popularity, providing opportunities for individuals to complete their education while overcoming time and distance constraints. Innovations in distance education allow for the design and development of online courses that adapt to meet the specific needs and/or learning styles of the students enrolled and reflect the unique teaching style and personality of the instructor. The purpose of this descriptive case study is to share three perspectives and three approaches of three faculty members who teach a range of graduate level educational technology courses at a university located in northeast Texas. Tips, techniques, lessons learned, and examples of proven interaction activities while meeting course objectives and addressing specific needs of students will be discussed.
