This course was designed to help you learn to navigate and become familiar with the most-used tools in Blackboard for designing web-enhanced, hybrid and online courses.
This course offers a basic overview of the Blackboard Learn system presented in six learning modules:
There are two main sections of this course:
NEXT START DATE FALL-2015
This course was designed primarily for part-time faculty. Participants learn about the important pedagogical, logistical, and technological issues involved in delivering effective online courses.
NEXT START DATE SPRING-2016
The goal of this course is to prepare instructors to develop and deliver high-quality distance learning. In order to meet that goal, instructors need quality training on common pedagogical, logistical, and technological strategies. This intensive seminar covers pedagogy, course design, instructional strategies, communication strategies, and online assessment. TOL6100 is offered in a hybrid format that includes a face-to-face kickoff day, seven online modules, a face-to-face roundtable discussion (half day), and face-to-face culminating final presentation day (half day).
**note- until 2015, TOL6100 included both the training to develop and deliver an online course and the course development itself. Course development support has now been moved to a separate course- TOL7100.
This is a self-paced online seminar course designed to assist faculty with their development of a high-quality distance learning course. The objective of TOL7100 is that participants design and develop an online course and complete a successful Quality Matters course review within one year of TOL7100 start date. TOL7100 is organized into three phases (Getting Started, Design and Development, and Course Review). Each phase provides participants with basic guidance to support the course development. Participants may choose a guided track in which they work closely with an instructional designer (ID) to create a Course Development Plan that contains benchmarks and deadlines, or they may choose an independent track in which there are occasional meetings with an ID to discuss course development issues, but the overall course development process is self-managed.
Alumni of TOL6100 may apply for a seat in the national iON Master Online Teacher certificate program. This rigorous 18-month program recognizes and certifies faculty, staff, and administrators who achieve a measurable level of knowledge related to online course design, online instruction, and other issues related to online teaching and learning. A limited number of spots will be funded each year and stipends available to participants. Faculty who achieve national certification are expected to provide service to the university community in the form of mentoring, course review, and/or workshop delivery. Contact CIRT for more information.
National Certification provided by the Illinois Online Network.
The CIRT Events schedule provides additional opportunities for ongoing professional development from CIRT staff in addition to webinars from national organizations including the Educause Learning Initiative, Academic Impressions, the Sloan Foundation, and the New Media Consortium.
