Designed to help online teachers achieve their personal and professional goals, RiverWithin is a new comprehensive, one-stop web site that provides quick and easy access to professional development, educational resources, and other key services for online instructors. “The most unique aspect of RiverWithin is that we are working to support online teaching as a lifestyle,” said Lisa Dawley, founder and CEO of RiverWithin Inc. RiverWithin’s professional development offerings include seminars, workshops, and short-term interactive classes taught by highly qualified online instructors. Courses cover topics such as “Getting Your Class and Students Online,” “Multimedia Design in Online Learning,” and “The Power and Impact of Digital Imagery in Online Education.” Many of the site’s resources, such as the discussion and job boards, are free, but professional development courses cost $145 each.
