The Instructional Designers and Media Producers of the Digital Learning & Design (DLD) team partner with instructors throughout the online course lifecycle to create engaging and effective student learning experiences. Whether the course begins as a face-to-face class or is designed from scratch, course development takes considerable time and thought.
Before embarking on this journey, an instructor should ask themself:
- Why do I want to design and teach an online course?
- Do you normally completely design your course before it begins? How much time do you have to design an online course before it begins?
- In what ways do I want my online course to be engaging, student-centered and dynamic?
