This course offers you a new just-in-time methodology for instructional design that values more than the ability to place content online. It values your expertise, recognizes that knowledge is in constant evolution, and validates quality through a continuous process of quality assurance. This course is about bringing you the skills you need to teach your content online just as it is most needed.
As you gradually become the online course designer, you will learn to
- conduct needs assessment and bring out the teachable elements from your subject;
- map out outcomes aligned to meaningful and relevant authentic assessments;
- apply method to sequencing online instruction that supports, not confuses, the learning; and
- design purposefully with universal design principles and intuitive flow.
