  • 05/06/2024 - 06/03/2024

This course was designed for instructors with minimal learning design experience. It will help you to develop an approach to online course design that employs Penn State Quality Assurance e-Learning Design Standards and Quality Matters Standards to promote effective and engaging learning experiences. Ideally, this course will prepare you for the development of a new, fully online course. Or perhaps you want to redesign or edit an online course you have already taught. In either case, this course will be useful to those working on their own or in partnership with an instructional designer.
