Final Overview of Course Prototype

The beginning of EC&I 834 challenged me to create an online course. I was required to select a target student population, course format and toolset, content and objectives, assessment strategies and in general, an overall design of a course prototype. Based on these assignment requirements, I created the following course profile: Course Profile – Online Counselling for Adolescent Parents Throughout the… Read More »

Student/Student-Instructor Interactions

Tech Integration & Blended Learning

Chapter 9: Modes of Delivery by Tony Bates proved to be informative when learning more about technology-based learning.  As Bates outlines, modes of delivery can include fully online, blended, or face-to-face.  I feel it most important to highlight Bates’ idea that when choosing how to deliver course content, an instructor must first consider student needs.  Bates encourages… Read More »
