The time demands of online teaching may discourage nurse educators from developing distance learning courses. As consumer expectations for online education grow, it is essential that educators identify strategies that will enable efficient use of time to both develop and teach online courses. The authors review the distance learning literature from the perspective of time management strategies for online teaching. Approaches used by the authors to efficiently develop and teach online courses are described.
