  • 1. Week 2: Creating Intro & Structure Your Course Intro Course Structure & The Template Creating Lessons Copyright & Digitization
  • 2. Course Structure: *Your course is going to contain a considerable amount of material - it’s extremely important to maintain a consistent structure from week to week so students can find what they are looking for.
  • 3. Course Structure: The Template *In your course, you will find a template has been uploaded for you to use *We use a template for online courses to provide consistency between classes, to make it easier for students to navigate, and to ensure instructors include important elements.
  • 4. Course structure: Template *Everything on the template that is in maroon is instructional and should be deleted when you are done revising content. *Bold headings indicate headings that should remain in the course. Edit the text below these headings with your content.
  • 5. Course Structure: the Template * If you are teaching a previously designed course, we will work with you to merge the content with the template. (contact Erin!). * The next slide contains a short video on how to edit the template.
  • 6. Course Structure: *Choose 1 or 2 days assignments will be due, and keep those the same each week (example: discussion post due each Thursday, weekly assignments due Sundays). *Be aware of your students’ schedules. You may need to tweak the days & times assignments are due to accomodate.
  • 7. Course Structure: Ideas: *Practice consistency in all elements of the course: -email reminders the same day each week -use the same Moodle assignment type -use the same type of forum for discussion -Be available via chat or phone the same day/time each week
  • 8. Novelty within the Structure: *Having a consistent structure is not meant to remove innovation from the classroom. *Build novelty into activities from week to week - new websites, videos, graphics, etc. *Allow for flexibility with online ‘office hours’ - let students set virtual appointments at times that work for them.
  • 9. Remember to Think Backwards: *As you think about the structure of your course, and begin building assignments and lessons for the class, always be asking how those materials align with the final course goal.
  • 10. Your Course Intro: *Use the top section of your course as the course intro. *This is where you will place items and announcements students need before the course begins. *Use directives, such as “START HERE!” to grab students’ attention.
  • 11. What to Include in Your Course Intro: *Syllabus & Course Calendar *Course description, goals & objectives *Instructor introduction and contact information *Tech requirements (software & skills), how to navigate the course, who to contact for tech help *A list of major assignments, percentages, grading scale, & rubric *A forum for students to introduce themselves.
  • 12. Forum for student introductions: *Asking students to introduce themselves promotes community building online. *Provide the first thread, and consider posting a picture. Encourage students to do so as well. *Along with a name & short bio, ask students why they are taking an online class, and if they have any experience with online classes.
  • 13. Your Intro: Several Options: *Students love getting to know their instructors, even in the online environment. Consider making a video using an iPad or a screencasting program to introduce yourself to the class. *Other options - create a powerpoint presentation with your info & pics, or write up a short biography.
  • 14. Online Lessons *Your online lessons will be a combination of readings, powerpoints, and video lessons.
  • 15. Best Practices for Powerpoint Lessons: *If converting presentations from a traditional classroom, review and edit your powerpoint slides carefully - make sure to include written explanations for concepts usually done verbally.
  • 16. Best Practices for Video Lectures: *Keep them short! If you have a lot of content to cover in a video lecture, break it up into 5 minutes sections and record several short videos instead of one long one. *Write an outline or script before recording. This ensures you won’t forget anything important, and helps you stay within the time limits.
  • 17. Tools for Video Lectures: *iPad or other tablet device - great for intro videos - just point at your face and record *Screen-casto-Matic & Screenr.com - Screenr & Screen-cast-o-matic are great for recording audio over your powerpoint slides. When you are done, send videos to YouTube, or save the file to your computer.
  • 18. Embedding Your Content into Moodle: 1. Record your video using the iPad (instructions posted in Moodle) or a Screencasting tool 2. Send it to YouTube (you can create a YouTube account with your Goshen Username/Password
  • 19. Embedding Videos into Moodle 3. In YouTube, click Share & copy the embed code:
  • 20. Embedding video into Moodle 4. In Moodle, open the editor for the section you want to add the video 5. Click the <> 6. Paste the code text. When you save, it will go back to the normal view and you can easily move and enter text around the video.
  • 21. Using Copyrighted Materials Online: As you prepare your lessons and materials, you may find outside resources - websites, articles, images, and videos - you want to include in your course. Copyright & Fair Use in the online environment is extremely complicated!
  • 22. Using Copyrighted Materials Online: *Use database articles, websites, and images as you normally would (Business faculty- please contact your librarian for information on using case studies from Harvard Business Review). *DVD or VHS Videos you use in a traditional classroom likely CANNOT be converted for use in your online course.
  • 23. Why can’t I convert my DVDs? *Fair Use and copyright law is vague, but recent decisions imply that fair use doesn’t extend to online classrooms. *To secure legal rights to convert/stream video is time consuming, and often expensive. *Even if legal rights are secured, it can take weeks to complete the conversion process.
  • 24. Instead of Digitizing DVDs….. There are lots of great sites with free & legal video content (links posted in Moodle): Or, students can rent videos (these work best for courses showing popular Hollywood movies): C-Span Video Library Discovery Channel Khan Academy PBS Video Ted Talks TeacherTube YouTube Amazon Hulu (subscription) iTunes Netflix (subscription) Public Libraries Redbox
  • 25. Tasks for this Week: *Create an intro video or powerpoint for your course, and practice embedding video into your Moodle course! *Post to the discussion board any questions, comments, or frustrations with this process. If you’re willing to share your intro, post it to the forum too. *Complete the Moodle lesson for this week.
