Creating an Online Course Development Process

Creating an Online Course Development Process

Poster Session - Emerging Technologies
Thursday, October 25, 2007 4:55 p.m. - 6:10 p.m.
Ballroom 6E, table 29

* Geoffrey B. Cain, Instructional Designer, Tacoma Community College

Tacoma Community College has created an online course development process. The process is designed to support faculty by providing a clear time-line for course development, a discussion of what kind of training faculty will need to develop and teach online courses, the kind of support faculty will need, and online course development rubrics for quality assurance and peer review.
Available Resources

The following resources have been provided by this session's speaker(s). To download a file, right click the link and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As."

Flow Chart Poster [PPT 155 KB ] This was the file we used to make our flow chart of our course development process. October 26, 2007 1:32 PM

Course Development Timeline [DOC 31 KB ] A time line is a useful way to communicate to faculty exactly what kind of time commitment is involved in developing courses. October 26, 2007 1:34 PM

Course Review Rubric [DOCX 18 KB ] This was the rubric that we used to make another poster. Developing a rubric for your institution will require that everyone in your particular institution jointly understands the outcomes and goals of the course, the division, and the principles of distance learning. In other words, there is no out-of-the-box solution to this. October 26, 2007 1:37 PM

Course Development Guide [DOC 112 KB ] This is the online course development guide we give to instructors. The idea behind the guide is to let the instructors know all of the resources that are available to them. This is meant to be a process that not only ensures quality but also supports faculty. October 26, 2007 1:40 PM

Course Sign-Off Form [DOC 35 KB ] Again, this form is not only for our record keeping, but also a way to provide instructors an idea about all of the people that are here to help them through the course development process. October 26, 2007 1:42 PM

All of these forms are customized to our institution and are here for research and discussion purposes (your results may vary). We are very interested in your feedback in this ever evolving process. If you use or revise this documents, please email us at so we can take advantage of your research as well.
