TCC2011 Open Content & Iterative Online Course Design

  1. 1. Open Content and Iterative Design<br />Lisa Marie Johnson, Ph.D.<br />TCC 2011<br />
  2. 2. Assessments<br /> Competencies<br />Accessible<br />Media<br />Sustainable <br />Content<br />Organization<br />
  3. 3. 2002-<br />2008<br />Gathering Resources<br />Experimenting with use as Supplements<br />2009<br />Mapping / Assessments<br />2010-2011<br />Pilot & Revision<br />4 faculty, 20+ sections<br />Planning<br />
  4. 4. Barriers<br />Accessibility<br />Rich online media – not always transcripted or captioned<br />Copyright<br />Limited O’Neil permissions<br />Articles in public domain<br />OCW<br />Images (Danee Voorhees, Wikicommons)<br />
  5. 5. Pilot Student Reflections<br />I would definitely recommend this course to a friend and non-friend because the course is well-organized, covers significant anthropological ground/the basics of cultural anthropology, and is composed of useful anthropological education activities.<br />I thought this class was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an online course that is both engaging and informative. I had a lot of fun learning with my classmates and found the discussions very intriguing; the questions were pertinent to our lives and the experiences and knowledge from the other students just made the assignments more substantive.<br />
  6. 6. Pilot Student Reflections<br />The discussion topics were interesting in that they required critical thinking relating to current events instead of just rote memorization from a text and because LM kept the class on track encouraging us to ask deeper questions while providing us with additional sources to consider.  <br />…actually make us THINK instead of just looking for answers within a book, or online. I feel that when I am pushed to deduce ideas on my own instead of just copying them from text is when I actually retain the information from a class! <br />

Success Factors<br />D2L Technology/Course Design<br />Grade Comments (Dropbox, Grades)<br />Quicklinking reminder Content<br />Consistency in Module Organization<br />Instructor Presence<br />Supplemental Resources<br />Videos<br />Weekly News/Announcements<br />Frequent Engagement<br />Re-engaging questions<br />
