Collaborative Design and Implementation of a Large University's Web-Based Course.
Yu, Chong Ho; Jannasch-Pennell, Angel; DiGangi, Samuel A.; Wijesuriya, Ruvi
This paper discusses how a university designed, developed, and delivered a feature-rich Web-based course for undergraduate plant biology. In the design stage, the focus centered around curriculum design, content development, and media acquisition. Instructors, including faculty and graduate assistants of plant biology, served as content experts, and based on input from the content experts, the design team identified three media for serving different purposes: MacroMedia Flash, Director Shockwave, and QuickTime. In the development stage, a positive feedback loop was established among the faculty, instructional designers, and multimedia developers. Since the Web content could not be updated easily, a formative evaluation scheme was implemented in the delivery stage. Each stage is discussed in detail in this paper. (AEF)
