Online Teacher Job Description

An online teacher teaches classes via Internet.

Online teaching is common among colleges and universities, as it allows professors to reach students over large distances or outside of their teaching region.

Online teachers typically conduct classes via online video, audio, or chat tools.

Online teaching is more popular among universities than high schools, as online teachers must typically clear their courses with administration.

Colleges and universities are large institutions that can more easily afford the costs of operating an online program.
