Online degree programs and individual courses are on the rise. A recent report indicates 44 percent of surveyed faculty have taught online, and 89 percent of those report being involved in the design of the course (Inside Higher Ed, 2018). That means there is a good chance that you’ll find yourself tasked with developing an online course soon—if you haven’t already. And there’s a better chance that you’ll be given a very short deadline to get the work done.

This Magna Online Seminar gives you strategies to maximize your planning and design timeframe—all leading to a more efficient course (i.e. less stress for you when you’re teaching) and a better experience for your students. Join us on January 31 for 7 Things to Consider Before Developing an Online Course, a Magna Online Seminar led by Brian Udermann, PhD. You’ll learn how to allow for adequate time to develop a course, explore avenues to find course content, prioritize the content students need to learn, create an instructor participation plan, determine what course assessments will be used, estimate the overall workload associated with developing and teaching an online course, and use existing faculty support services available to help with course design and planning.
