Course Building 101: One Module at a Time

Consistency in course design is paramount. A simple way to achieve this is through a course-building template that incorporates QM standards. The course template provides consistency for students as they navigate an online program. It also allows students to focus on content rather than navigation and will assist with persistence and retention rates. This session will explore a template that guides instructors/instructional designers in building a course using the "Course Building: One Module at a Time!" model course.

Moving on Up: Using Websites for Teacher and Staff Training

The Online Training Tools for Cloud Community College site was created so teachers and staff at the college could easily access training information regarding Canvas, basic technologies and student help. It has accomplished those goals and has provided a springboard to launch staff and student email newsletters, giving the faculty college information, and upgrading the college’s technological abilities. This presentation describes the objectives of the site and  ways that a site such as this can benefit any program.

During this presentation, we will discuss our mentoring philosophy, an Online Course Design Matrix that links course goals and objectives directly to assessment, and the integration of Quality Matters into our professional programming.
