  • For the past few years the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE) has been collaborating with member schools to develop online courses using a collaborative development approach that we branded ‘social authoring.’ Simply put, social authoring is a networked course development group that brings together authors, teachers, learners, technologist, designers, producers and project management. Social authoring allows individuals to put their best skills on display while working together with a team of other individuals possessing unique skills that enhance and advance the project.

    • 11. Social Authoring Successes
    • 12.
      • There was confusion and a basic misunderstanding over the right to use published material when creating an online course
      • There was a reluctance for instructors/subject matter experts to work for free
      • We needed to add a layer to the process to ensure quality, add visuals and captions for those visuals
      Initial Effort – What we Learned Social Authoring Lessons Learned
    • 13.
      • While we learned some lessons along the way, our basic process for social authoring still seems sound.
        • With member support, we intend to continue with the social authoring process and fine-tune the process as we learn from our experiences.
        • We think working together is more effective than working independently.
