This study provides practical “nuts and bolts” advice on developing and teaching a new online course for first-time online instructors. The advice is predominantly based on the observations and experiences of two instructors who developed and taught online courses for the first time on the “maiden voyage” of a newly established online MBA program and subsequent online teaching experiences. The lessons learned the “hard way” are discussed so instructors who are developing and teaching online courses for the first time within the context of a new program can avoid some “learning curve” problems.
