Virtual Challenge: Creating Quality E-Courses
Tuesday, January 25, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at the CRDC(L1126)
There’s a lot more to building online courses than digitizing text and adding a few videos. Online course designers are learning more about how to incorporate quick assessments that personalize the learning experience for students, how to keep students’ interest with video and simulations, and how to integrate gaming into their courses. The lessons being learned by course designers are significantly changing the way a successful online course is created for today’s students.
