In traditional brick-and-mortar higher education institutions, online learning presents a conundrum. Typically, strapped budgets cannot afford dedicated course designers and must rely on faculty course developers to create academic eCurriculum. Consistency and quality of eInstruction is a very challenging issue for colleges and universities developing their own curriculum.

Session participants will learn a course certification system that operates smoothly and efficiently with minimal human and digital resources. The course development uses a system of self- and peer-assessment that streamlines the process while enhancing course quality and supporting online collaboration between educational professionals. You’ll see a logistical operational plan demonstrated that will enable participants from educational settings to develop, certify, and bring to registration-readiness potentially dozens of courses concurrently throughout an academic year. The plan makes maximum benefit of free and low-cost web resources, as well as providing an excellent participatory model for faculty to use in their own courses for assessment strategies.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The basics of setting up a self- and peer-assessment system for course certifications
  • The value of free and low-cost web tools (cost, flexibility, interoperability, etc.)
  • Where to find resources to support your new eLearning program
  • How to engage technophobic and resistant faculty course developers in your process

Novice-to-advanced professionals with a basic understanding of web technologies and their value in education.
