An Online High School “Shepherding” Program: Teacher Roles and Experiences Mentoring Online Students
This case study analyzed a “shepherding program” at Mountain Heights Academy, a fully online high school. The authors found that the shepherding program enabled fully online teachers to provide their students with many of the services typical of on-site facilitators.

Reliability of Pre-service Physical Education Teachers' Coding of Teaching Videos Using Studiocode Analysis Software
The current study investigates the coding reliability and accuracy of pre-service teachers in a teaching methods class using digital video-based teaching episodes and Studiocode analysis software. Implications include (a) students can reliably learn to self-code within a reasonably short period of time making these technologies manageable in teaching methods courses and (b) digital video analysis may provide additional, accurate and reliable sources of feedback beyond traditional evaluative techniques.
