Presumably, you’ve landed on this page because you are or will be developing an online course for the College. Assuming this is the case, the staff in Technology-Enhanced Instruction would like to welcome you aboard and tell you a little about the development process.

Quality Matters

Developing an online course begins with the subject matter expert’s completion of Quality Matters’ flagship workshop Applying the QM Rubric.

Kickoff Meeting & Contract Generation

Once the subject matter expert has completed Applying the QM Rubric, they will meet with staff in Technology-Enhanced Instruction and others (as appropriate) who will outline the development process, discuss expectations, and establish deadlines. A development contract will be generated afterwards.

Course Development

Learning materials will be developed over 12 weeks in phases, each of which corresponds to 4 weeks of the course. These materials will include a detailed schedule for each week, 30-45 minutes of direct instruction, and a text-equivalent of some sort.

001

Learning materials must be original, developed collaboratively with an instructional designer, and provide learners with multiple ways to engage with course content.

The staff in Technology-Enhanced Instruction will scaffold the process by providing you with a zip file of templates and setting deadlines to help you manage your timeline and theirs.

Please note: we do not use our LMS as a document repository. Each course functions as its own website, with each page including unique, hand-coded elements that work in tandem with the robust capabilities of the system to create a distinct learning experience.
