elearners.com is a great first place to start one’s quest for an online university faculty position. 202 accredited online colleges and universities are listed in alphabetical order. This website will allow one to find information on as many online universities as possible in an expeditious manner.
Going to each school’s listing presents a page about that school. Scrolling down on that page brings one to a listing of the degree programs that are available at that school so that programs in ones area of expertise can be found. Unfortunately it almost seems that universities like to hide the actual online location of where one can apply for online faculty positions. The links on this website for each school generally lead to websites for prospective students.
Search for Online Adjunct Faculty Employment
By opening up a second browser window, a search can be conducted on the universities name along with the words “online adjunct faculty employment.” Then scroll down the links that come up for one that seems like it will get to information on employment. If there do not seem to be any links with the words “employment,” “instructor,” “faculty,” or something that would lead one to think that site will have job information, go to the main site and look at the links on the home page, on the top, sides and bottom of the screen. If there is nothing useful, look to see if there is a search bar for and try searching on the term “faculty employment,” or if there is a link for a “web map” that can be used to see if an employment area exists on the site. If nothing comes up generally a “contact” link can be found at the bottom of the home page and one can email an inquiry asking about their online faculty employment process.
It is important to keep a running list of all the universities to which applications have been submitted. Once the above process has been exhausted, the next step is to go to higher education specific job boards and then on to popular general job boards. This is where it comes in handy having a list of the universities to which applications have been submitted. Many of the jobs listed will be at universities which have already been applied to, so these can be eliminated as options.
