This is an online position as a Bachelor's level instructor. I typically log in daily to read and respond to student posts, including dropbox items, and emails, which include grading assignments. A typical day at work depends on the number of students who have posted that day. Due dates are typically heavier than other days. The beginning of the week is generally less busy that toward the end of the week when everyone rushes to post by the posted due date. Management is very supportive and holds monthly online faculty meetings. Trainings are available and posted frequently to allow for continued education credits. There's not really a "hard part" to this job but I'd say the most frustrating part is the fact that quarters are only five weeks which expedites the amount of time a student has to complete assignments and because of this, some students constantly submit work after the posted deadline which means who have to enter a 0 and then go back and regrade when they do post. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the students and engaging with other faculty members on the monthly faculty training calls.
