Ed. Tech. Services has started a DVD library of eLearning Online Seminars. Listed here are the current titles available. If you’re interested in any of these please email Matthew Kile with the title you would like and we will forward it through campus mail.
Five Steps to Improve your online courses is a webinar which focuses on continuously improving approaches for online courses and programs.
When you make the move to online teaching, you may discover that some of your old nemeses follow … difficult students, in all their manifestations. You can’t ignore them, any more than you can in a traditional classroom. But the online environment creates different opportunities and challenges for dealing with difficult students. What are those differences, and how do you adapt to them?
Do learning styles really matter? After hearing this seminar, you will be able to increase the effectiveness of eLearning design by:
A respected and successful faculty member moves a course online–and suddenly feels as if he or she has forgotten how to teach. Student interest appears to be down. The instructor senses things aren‘t going well. And all of that is confirmed by the most dreaded of outcomes: a low evaluation.
If quality online course design is your goal, Quality Matters will help identify the strengths and areas for improvement in your online course. Quality Matters (QM), is a highly successful project that developed an inter-institutional process for recognizing quality online courses. Using your own online course (or one of a colleague’s), you will learn more about QM’s rubric and process, apply the standards to your own course, and have an opportunity to review issues around “quality” course design.
