Teaching services online include the Teach System sponsored by the New York State Education Department that allows school employers, colleges and universities to access teacher certifications and employment history. The PBS TeacherLine is another teaching service that provides instructors with self-paced professional development courses to uncover new teaching tools and strategies.
Colleges and universities commonly provide teaching services and resources, such as the University of Washington's Center for Teaching and Learning at Washington.edu/teaching and the faculty services portal at Eli.nvcc.edu/fservices sponsored by Northern Virginia Community College.
Private companies specializing in educational materials also provide online teaching services, such as Scholastic.com. These websites provide teaching tools, ideas for interactive activities and classroom games, and teaching strategies for beginner and experienced instructors.
Online teaching services provide educators and administrators with tools to supplement the curriculum, advice for managing behavior and challenges in the classroom, and professional development opportunities for instructors to gain certification in additional subjects such as science, math and English as well as tips for using technology in the classroom. Students or aspiring teachers can also benefit from online teaching services by browsing through tutorials, lectures from experienced instructors, lesson plans, curriculum tips, and policies and procedures common in most school districts and educational settings.
