This post in continuation of the original 10 Steps to Build a Remote/Hybrid/Online Course
Have you ever thought to yourself any of the following:
- My course is a mess!
- I worked so hard on all this content and activities, but my students seem so lost!
- I am new to online/remote teaching and have no idea how to even start! #IfIhadadollar
- I wish I had a place to at least start from.
- I wish our department had a starting point for a shared course experience.
Have students ever asked:
- How do I get started, navigate, and work through your course?
- What are we doing this week?
- I can’t find this weeks work, can you help me?
- Why do we have to do this? (one of my personal favorites)
- How do I submit this assignment?
- When is our midterm? Finals? This week’s assignment?
- I’m confused about what to do when to do it, and how I’m supposed to submit it to you. Can you help me?
Well, have we got an answer for you! The Instructional Design Services has developed a Moodle course shell template, IDS Template [OSCQR]. $ $ Free of charge and 100% openly licensed to share and share-alike with your friends!
The IDS template will provide you with a solid start to a course (remote or online) design that is student-centric and based on research best practices as outlined in OSCQR. Use all or just a few pieces of the course template – a la carte model of sharing the love.
Act fast to get yours! Email the firstname.lastname@example.org and just ask for an import!
DONT WAIT! ACT NOW!
Ok..enough of the cheesy infomercial…my sales career lasted only a couple very miserable weeks in college. If interested all you need to do is email the ATC and ask for an import of all or pieces of the template. Have questions about how to use the template or what parts make sense to bring over to your course? Inquire with an instructional designer.
Review of steps to Course Dev so far covered:
STEP 1: Brush up on my Moodle skills.
STEP 2: Review and spend time with the IDs OSCQR Top 15 best practices in course design.
Step 3: Meet with an instructional designer to develop a Personal Development Plan (PDP) on course design and training needed to teach.
Step 4: Complete a course planning worksheet (note this can be used in your syllabus).
Step 5: Ask the ATC to import the IDS Moodle course template. Use the template material and fill in the blanks where needed.
