Enhancing Face-to-Face Courses with a Course Management System
Frey, Barbara Ann
Online Submission
Web-based materials presented through course management software can become an integral part of the students' learning process. Online activities and content promote active, collaborative, and accessible learning. Faculty recognize these benefits, but often struggle with finding the time and effort to develop Web material. This article presents a development system for faculty creating online materials to enhance their face-to-face courses. The process of determining the purpose, organizing the content, and evaluating the results leads instructors through an effective development plan. Faculty use course management systems for a variety of administrative and pedagogical reasons, such as to augment course content, increase active learning, provide feedback, and increase communication. Organizing the online materials requires a clear, succinct and consistent structure. Through ongoing evaluation, faculty can refine materials to support student achievement. (Contains 1 figure.)
