Online Course Design 3 Pack
These three fast-paced presentations will show you how good course design can help you connect with students, prevent cheating, and make the most out of available resources, including your time!
Improve Your Online Teaching—by Design
Course design in online education is a high-stakes affair. Developing an online course is resource intensive in terms of money, time, and instructional support. Online faculty don’t have access to the informal cues and clues of the traditional classroom to gauge how they’re doing, and, when trouble is detected, making changes in online courses can get complicated quickly.
However, effective online course design can be transformative. The Online Course Design 3 Pack shows you how to get it right and help you:
- Create a community of engaged learners, even in online courses
- Establish a culture of honesty and identify students who violate those norms
- Extend the life of the work put into developing courses by selecting components to be repackaged, repurposed, and reused in multiple ways
The three presentations included in the Online Course Design 3 Pack are all taught by leaders in the field. Watch the following sessions when and where it’s convenient for you; at 20 minutes each, that’s not hard to do.
