Nurturing online learning environments: course design and structure

Nurturing online learning environments: course design and structure | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Effective use of what we know about the communication process to create a receptive atmosphere for online learning can influence the design and structure of courses and relevant instructional resources. To emphasize the role of sound instructional design principles and strategies for effective online courses, Islamoglu and Branch (University of Georgia) recommend that, from the beginning, instructors should demonstrate the value of their course and its content. The value of a course is communicated via an intentional structure, the design and purpose of assignments and the selection of resources shared within the course. Such decisions are predicated on periodic reviews of the course design and investigations into newer instructional resources, literature and digital tools. Online instructors can also capitalize on learner feedback and suggestions to guide their course enhancement.
