WHAT ARE ESSENTIALS TO BUILD AN ONLINE COURSE?
PLAN YOUR COURSE FOR A LEARNING EXPERIENCE
- Get the Student Learning Outcomes * from your department. You can add them to your syllabus, refer to them in your modules, and align your course content and activities so that students attain these learning outcomes.
- Identify the skills students need and the strategies for learning and practicing course content.
- Plan how your students will experience the course content to achieve the outcomes. Outline it, map it, or sketch it out.
- Consider real-world, memorable content and activities with discussion, and student self-reflection.
- Check the time it will take your students to do the coursework you've developed.
*A Student Learning Outcome describes what your student will be able to do as a result of taking your course. It supports the Program Learning Outcomes.
