Effective Course Design for E-learning (ELE002)


Designing an online course requires educators and developers to find a pathway through a complex terrain in which media, curriculum, ideology, context and resources must all be balanced and negotiated. 

This course will give a practical and theoretical grounding in ways of approaching this task. We will begin by exploring a range of approaches to course design, moving on to a small group activity in which each member will have the opportunity to design and run a small-scale learning event. 

You will also have the option to study approaches to course evaluation, and issues of usability in interface design for learning. For the main course assessment you will have the opportunity to design and part-build your own course (Project Part I).
