  •  it doesn't work that way (0+ / 0-)

    the way I teach depends very much on knowing my students.  My lessons are sometimes vastly different from period to period because the students who make up the classes are different.

    I have in the past been offered the opportunity to teach online for the Center for Talented Youth from Johns Hopkins, but declined.

    I have recently been offered a part-time political gig online that I now think I will also decline.  It was decent money for the time, and would feed my ego, but I am not sure i could fit it in to my idea of how i want to use what is left of my productive time/energy.

    •  Understandable... but consider this: (0+ / 0-)

      The difference this time is that you aren't going to have 'classes'. You're going to have people watching your lessons because they want to watch them, rather than folks going largely because they have no choice.

      It would also be relatively easy to gather demographic information after you've gotten started, thus allowing you to tailor the lessons to an extent.

      My style is impetuous.
      My defense is impregnable.
