    DescriptionWhen Dr. Beata Webb and Alicia Vallero joined forces in 2013, as part of the team developing an online Master of Arts in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) program at Bond University, they faced concerns about the efficacy of online learning, both personally and from their educational community. Although the team possessed ample experience assembling TESOL programs and in blended learning, they had limited experience with online education. And so, they were in for a big surprise. So much so, that it has completely transformed and revitalized the way they think about education and teaching. With the help of Blackboard Collaborate, they embarked on a journey that would completely redefine them professionally and the way they envision the future of education.
