Online teaching is essential for many purposes and for many institutions, mainly Universities. It is, therefore, important for the instructor, to keep in mind some basic principles in every phase of the teaching process. From the design to the assessment, the learner can face many difficulties. In this talk, some tips about online teaching will be presented, mainly related to the experience of the start@unito project at the University of Turin (Italy), an open online platform which delivers 50 online university modules.
