In this session, I will describe lessons learned in delivering online courses to remote participants with limited internet and device constraints. I will talk about the program design and components that are scalable and cost efficient for building social presence and teaching presence at scale to remote learners. I will cover outcomes from the program and recommendations for others that are also looking to design effective online programs with the limitations of hardware, internet connectivity, and rural populations.
