Classical music pedagogy and theory courses are traditionally taught face-to-face in a classroom. The challenge of expanding enrollment for music courses can be met through a combination of best practices in instructional design, and interactive publisher content, enabling a greater range of students (majors and non-majors) to study music.


Attendees will:

  • See the equipment and teaching strategies employed by the instructor, expecially Blackboard, Kaltura Media, and Collaborate
  • Hear about the tech support requirements for the instructor and students at different stages of the course
  • Become familiar with the assignment design, evaluation tools, and music publisher resources for distance-learning in two kinds of music courses

Prof. of Piano

University of Arkansas at Little Rock


Linda teaches at a metropolitan university with a diverse student body, including non-traditional age students, and ESL students.  For two courses, MUED 3302 – Piano Pedagogy, and MUTH 1310 - Music Fundamentals, students with differing schedule needs couldn’t attend on-campus face-to-face.  In response, she developed successful online music courses.
