Welcome to the SUNY Online Teaching Readiness Assessment!
Teaching online requires certain prerequisite technical skills, capacity, support, and motivation. This resource was designed to help you self-assess your basic technical skills, check your general readiness to teach online, and to give you the opportunity to hear directly from online faculty, instructional designers, and students about their online teaching and learning experiences to help clarify and deepen your understanding.

Use the check boxes to keep track of your progress though these introductory materials and resources.

To get started, follow the links below presented in a list format, or browse the self-assessments, resources, and videos presented graphically on the Readiness page.
