All courses need to be revised and refreshed throughout their lifecycle. Whether it is a simple modification to update links that have changed, altering a graphic for one that is more current, or doing a complete redesign because a key component of the course has changed, revisions are required. Aside from all of the routine “course cleanup” tasks necessary to keep your course functioning as it was developed, you should also review your student feedback to determine whether more pedagogical changes are required. For this task, turn to your sources of quantitative or qualitative feedback from your students, which as mentioned in the last section, might include any or all of the following:
Once you have finished designing and developing your online or hybrid course, it is important to reflect upon its quality. Is your course design usable and accessible? Will your course effectively promote student learning?
Quality Matters is a substantial review process based on research-supported and published best practices that aims to improve online student learning. Consider the following questions based on Quality Matters standards when reviewing your course:
To learn more about the course review process, visit the Course Review page.
To request feedback from an instructional designer regarding your course, schedule a meeting with your department’s appointed instructional designer by visiting the Liaison Program page.
To learn more about the Quality Matters process or how to submit your course for official review, visit UNF’s Quality Matters page.
Once you have incorporated student feedback and made changes to your course as necessary, you may need additional assistance from CIRT. As always, if you need assistance with any aspect of your course, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and setup an appointment for Canvas assistance, or visit our consultations page to schedule a meeting with an Instructional Designer.
