Making the Switch: Turning Face-to-Face Content into Meaningful Online Courses
Davis, Gerry; Dick, Donna
Learning & Leading with Technology, v36 n5 p18-22 Feb 2009
Online courses are flexible and convenient for students, but creating them takes time and careful planning. Educators need to reflect on the goals of a course change when transitioning from a classroom setting to a virtual environment. In this article, the authors have drawn up an outline of the basic steps needed to go from a traditional course curriculum, through the logistics of organizing it for the Internet environment and launching the lessons on a workable timeline, to the final goal of an online course that is both rich in content and technically savvy. (Contains 8 online resources.)
