Online teaching position?

I hold a bachelors in Human Resource Management and a masters degree in Industrial Labor Relations. I have 4 years work experience in the HR field. I currently work as an HR Manager for a small company but am currently only part-time so I can spend more time at home with my 1-year old. I love my job & I love the company I work for. I also love spending more time home with my baby. I hate the PT pay though. I eventually want to go back to work FT (but know it won’t be at my current job, they don’t need me FT) and would like to get into a line of work more closely related to my masters degree.

In the meantime, I’m trying to think of ways to make extra money. I was thinking about trying to teach online courses through an online university. I don’t aspire to become a true academic, so I’m not worried about ruining my academic reputation by teaching with an online university like Phoenix, etc.

Does anybody have any information of what being an online professor through one of these places entails? How much time is needed on my end? What kind of compensation is offered?

Thanks!

Most colleges require that you have at least a Masters degree in the subject you are looking to teach online, so you would want to teach classes in the area of HR, right?

According to this article, A Guide to Teaching Online, the pay is around $1500 for a semester course. I think the amount of time you spend depends a lot upon your subject, and I am not sure for HR-type classes.

  1. I am currently taking classes online and would suggest contacting the schools you are interested in and gaining the information straight from them. I know that several of the teachers I have had in the past have worked full time and lead busy home lives and still have time to teach online.References :
