We are offering this course as a demo, for people who want to see what our courses are like. The demo course does not come with the usual instructor involvement, but you can see the content and the way the course is laid out. To request access and receive your Moodle login, contact us at [email protected]. We will be happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have about our system or our courses.

Are you responsible for developing an online course? Although the task may sound daunting, this course navigates participants through intelligently-planned course design. Following Wiggins and McTighe’s principle of backward design, the course first focuses upon learning outcomes, then align assessments, instructional, and learning activities with those outcomes. By the end of this course, participants will have a basic blueprint for building their own online course.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Determine the importance of learning objectives in relation to assessments.
  • Explore various instructional materials and learning activities to enhance student learning outcomes

Mimi O’Malley is the learning technology translation strategist at Spalding University. She helps faculty prepare course content for hybrid and fully online courses in addition to incorporating open education resources into courses.

Course Structure

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.
