Best Practices: Design and Develop Your Online Course (Course 3)
Instructors: Barb Maynard and Greta Steber
Dates: February 13 - March 5, 2017
In this class, you’ll learn about and practice three main steps for developing an online course. First, you’ll learn how and why to start your course design by writing learning objectives. Next, you’ll explore some of the ways to create authentic online assessments. Finally, you’ll see and try some of the options for presenting course materials online, such as lectures, readings and more. While we will not focus on teaching you how to use Canvas, you will work in Canvas to create items for your own course.
You might be interested in this course if:
- You have some experience as an online developer/student/instructor.
- You have some experience with a learning management system.
- You have an interest in learning some basic steps in designing and developing an online course.
This class is part of a series of TILT short courses on best practices for designing, developing and facilitating online courses. The courses can be taken in any order. However, if you don’t have much experience designing and developing an online course, hands-on experience in a learning management system or previous online teaching experience, you may want to take Course 1 (which will be offered this summer) before taking Course 3 or Course 4.
