Reflections on DMC

Notes from meeting with Yelena Yan on July 21, 2004

Questions addressed:
How do you move an existing course into an online format?
What is your preferred timeline for an online course's first offering?
How do we sell online learning to stakeholders?

How do you move an existing course into an online format?
- Review current material: Syllabus, lecture notes, handouts, activities, & assignments
- Ask questions of the materials: How can the activities and assignments be done online? How can interaction with the instructor and class be built in?
- Instructors develop course and submit to DMC. There is no requirement for instructors to take a course on online learning.
- I have DMC's syllabus template on this BLOG, I also have an example syllabus from EPSY 5261, one of the newest online courses in the College

What is your preferred timeline for an online course's first offering?
- One year of development (9 mo. development, 3 mo. pilot)
- 1st quarter - Administrative set-up:
Copywrite
Content development plan - who's doing what and accouontable specifically?
Media scheduling - Video (Jeff Abbezahob)
- 2nd quarter - Develop Content (instructor/department)
- 3rd quarter - DMC Site Development
- 4th quarter - Testing - allow 2-3 weeks to update after testing

How do we sell online learning to stakeholders?
- WEBCT orientation
- Breeze orientation (free usage prior to fall 05)
- Have them educate themselves - help with good resources
- Exemplar - CPSY 4310 would be a good option for parent education
