Since 1999 I’ve been teaching online for the Open University. It may not pay brilliantly, but it’s regular income and I really enjoy doing it; OU students often overcome major barriers to achieve a qualification they missed out on earlier in life, for whatever reason, so they can be very rewarding to teach. And the fact that it’s online means I can conveniently fit it around other work. Currently I teach three courses in the Certificate in Web Application Development.
I can now announce that I’m also going to start teaching an online course with eClasses.org, the online learning branch of IWA/HWG. The course uses PHP and MySQL to build a shopping cart, and is aimed at intermediate PHP developers (you don’t have to know anything about MySQL, but it certainly helps if you do). I’m really lookng forward to this; you can see the full course description here, and registration is now open.
