The Online Course Design Guide and accompanying website are designed to help guide faculty and instructional designers develop online courses. The accompanying website is intended to share the "lessons learned" by experienced practitioners in online course design.
The collaboration began with a strategic consulting phase to better understand how educational technology might enhance the advanced manufacturing programs at Transformation Agenda colleges. Emerging from this initial phase were the design and development of case studies focusing on an Introduction to Problem Solving and Improving Observation skills and an online assessment tool to enable students to better understand the relationships between orthographics and 3D representations of complex machined parts. Also part of the second phase was a proof-of-concept "data bus" to link labor and workforce data will college programs. A final phase focused on data modeling to represent labor market information for the design and development of service models.
The Office of Educational Innovation and Technology works with faculty, staff and students to enable and promote the development and dissemination of innovative uses of technology in teaching and learning. The Office of Educational Innovation and Technology was reorganized into various units within the Office of Digital Learning in Spring 2013.
