Course Development Process
To begin the course development process, the academic chair contacts Dr. Bruce Simmerok and completes preliminary authorizations for a fully online course to be developed. The academic department provides a subject matter expert (SME) to work with a CeLT instructional designer..
Adhering to ”Quality Standards for Online Learning,” a CeLT designer works with the faculty SME to develop an engaging, online learning experience that achieves Student Learning Outcomes. A unique learning experience must be crafted to meet the realities of online and the learning objectives of the course. The Curriculum Specialist creates a “project” shell designated as the “ Course Master” in the name of the SME. Therein the development takes place. The development process includes three meetings spaced over a 60-day period. The course master is then available for designated instructors, including the SME, to import into assigned live course shells. After three years, CeLT and the academic department may review the course for possible revisions.
