Customized Course Review Rubrics: How to Take the Quality of Your Online Courses to the Next Level
use an online course review rubric to improve relationships with your faculty
Online courses have become very popular in recent years, and for good reason. Colleges and universities can offer more class variety and reach more people. And students find them more convenient and more flexible.
One of the primary criticisms of online courses in the past has been that they lack the quality of face-to-face learning. Whether or not that perception is accurate, using online course review rubrics has certainly made a difference. While generic, off-the-shelf rubrics, like what you get from subscription services, are fine for some, the one-size-fits-all model doesn’t work for everyone. If you want the benefits of a customized rubric, consider creating one of your own. And your first step in that process should be to order the latest online seminar from Magna Publications, Customized Course Review Rubrics: How to Take the Quality of Your Online Courses to the Next Level.
