  1. Question: How much has your institution just spent on the design of your Psychology course?

    Answer:  $82,500.

    Let the quibbling begin about my parameters here — but the broad outlines are pretty solid. The course design costs do not show up on our books, but as a system many colleges and universities are incurring huge off-book course design costs — probably hundreds of thousands in a case like Keene State College, and likely millions elsewhere. And yet we sit around and ask ourselves “How could we ever afford to spend 1,000 hours designing an online course? How can that be sustainable?”.

    Well, this is how. It begins by owning up to the off-book costs of course design, and then thinking more strategically how we could apply that money…

  2. Course and materials design and development is a multi-layered, multi-faceted process. This Guide will help you to think about five questions in relation to a number of key issues – such as planning, content, context, learner support, structure, resources, learning, and assessment – in relation to course and materials design. The answers to the questions at the level of course design influence your answers in relation to materials design, and create a golden thread or a story-line between course and materials design and development. Whether you are designing learning materials for delivery in campus-based courses or fully online off-campus courses, or something in between, the broad design issues are similar.

  9. Fantastic breakdown by Instructure on course design patterns in Canvas (and likely applies to other LMS as well…)
  10. The intent of this study was to gain a sense of design preferences of students and to provide a set of recommendations and best practices for course designers working in the Canvas LMS at Penn State. Students taking a course in Canvas with the World Campus in Spring 2016 were surveyed regarding these preferences
