ET202 Building a New Course? Not Without an Instructional Design Toolbox
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, March 17
eLearning Tools Stage
Have you ever started development on a project and realized that you have no clue where to start? Or maybe you have an idea of what you need, but don’t have the tools necessary to achieve what you want? In this session you will learn about tools that you can add to your instructional design toolkit. We will explore the topics of blueprinting, project and time management tools, templates for rubrics, and accessibility considerations, and you will walk out of the session with physical and digital copies of a number of tools.
