Tuesday, March 26 11:50 AM-12:10 PM Location: Oak Alley
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how an online course development team at a large land-grant mid-western university designs and develops quality online learning environments. The course development team—a curriculum director, an instructional designer, a graphic designer and several graduate students—works collaboratively with the instructor to design and sustain the online courses. In this presentation, we will describe the design and development process through sample courses; discuss lessons learned throughout the process; and finally share our future plans to improve online courses to ensure students have vivid learning experiences.
