Online Teaching Development Tutorials

If you are exploring a new teaching method - an "active learning" lecture format; a course re-design from face-to-face to online; a revamp of your syllabus - you might want to consider taking a tutorial for that task. Many of the sites below provide excellent and substantial tutorials and course modules free of charge! (Although more and more of these sites are changing their status to fee-based because of the rising interest in online teaching in particular.)
