Building Background

Literature on Course Design

If you are interested in some quick reads specific to online course design and creating virtual communities, we recommend the resources below. 

Tools of theTrade 

Technology should be your supporting cast.  Better to have a small talented ensemble than an entire chorus line. There’s a myriad of robust instructional tools out there, but you only want to utilize the 2-3 tools that best support the learning in your class.  Afterall, you want students learning to think critically within your discipline, not waste energy and time learning to use a laundry list of tools.

Watch Summer 2020 Webinars

If you are new to the tools listed below, take some time and watch the webinars linked from Summer 2020.  Canvas and Zoom are a must for a virtual Fall, even if you plan to teach synchronously via Zoom.  As you review the remaining tools, consider which tool(s) will provide the most bang for your cognitive buck.  Meaning, which tool(s) can support your instruction and provide meaningful interaction in alignment with course outcomes.
