DL 107: Designing Your Course

Designing DL courses is not nearly as simple as taking an existing traditional course and putting it online. In this module we will walk through things to consider as you build and design your distance learning course. It is important to understand that both teaching and learning in an online environment requires an additional set of skills over and above those important for teaching and learning in the classroom. We will introduce some best practices and key success factors that can guide you in this process.


This online presentation includes audio, video, examples, demonstrations, and instructional methods.
