COVID-19 forced many instructors to migrate their practice online and created a need to develop a new online teaching model. This article proposes an online asynchronous model specifically designed for an economics course. This teaching model was designed with three objectives: consistency, structure, and flexibility. It builds on the capability of learning management systems (LMSs) to create a straightforward learning path for students. The model delivers theoretical and practical knowledge and, although asynchronous, describes the instructor’s key role. It embraces strategies to reduce social isolation arising from online, asynchronous teaching models.
