Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic caused colleges and universities in the US to move classes online all of a sudden in March 2020. Since then, some institutions have provided their instructors with training to teach online, but may not have been able to provide the usual level of training because they are limited in their ability to train instructors while operating remotely. On the other hand, as the pandemic persists, students who are continuing their education online expect high quality online teaching. In this article, I list some tips for creating and delivering successful online classes, especially introductory astronomy classes. These tips are based on my experience with teaching introductory astronomy lecture courses online, before and during the pandemic and could help instructors develop effective online classes.
