This past week I have been busy entering in the last portion of my course that I outlined in last week’s post, Building my online course: Wrapping it up! I completed the discussion board forums and set up all of the assignments for each of the 5 weeks. In addition, I set up a meeting room using Adobe Connect for our weekly synchronous meetings (webinars). Our “Weekly Course Chat” along with the discussion forums will make up the collaborative pieces of the course. All other assignments throughout the course are done individually be each learner.
I can say that I’ve put a lot of thought and consideration into my course design and Meyer’s Universal Design for Learning – Theory and Practice has really been a valuable tool for planning my course and choosing appropriate media and activities for my learners.
You can take a look at the fully completed course if you self-enroll using this instruction sheet on how to sign up. Although the course is complete there will always be a need to evaluate, edit and improve it.
