THINK & REFLECT
I have learned so much regarding online teaching in this module. I think the most important aspect of this module was considering the challenges. When putting an online course together, you really have to dissect the information and break it down to make sure its understand. As you perform this task, it is also very useful to tie each piece of information back to a course objective. I think this process is just as beneficial to the instructor as it is to the student. It really forces the instructor to make sure every piece of information is pertinent to the course. It also forces instructors to have instructions and rubrics for every piece of course material. Preparing to teach online is very similar to reviewing your entire course. By doing this, you can ensure that you meet the OSCQR guidelines. This critique of the course you are teaching is very helpful to ensure fluidity and eliminate ambiguity. It will allow for a better course organization and presentation to the students. All of this is time consuming but very worthwhile. Taking into consideration the students technological limitations and the ease at which the course content can be found is very important.
I will use all that I have learned in reviewing all of my current online courses. I will make sure that I edit all course material and provide very clear instructions as well as reorder information and provide the proper titles to each module and the corresponding content. I will also make sure that each lesson or activity can be associated with a student learning outcome.
