Course Organization

This workshop highlights strategies for designing an organized, high-quality hybrid or online course. Accessibility, aesthetics, thematic, modular, and chronological design formats in eClass are topics of discussion, as well as the alignment of learning objectives and course goals in context to the way content is organized. We also introduce a pre-designed template for MSMC instructors to use when developing their hybrid or online course on eClass (Moodle).

The Ins and Outs of Course Sharing

It’s a common practice for collaborating instructors to share eClass content amongst themselves, but how do you know that your content is secure in the meantime? In this session, we share information on procedures we use to protect your intellectual property, and share tips on how you can work with us to securely share your course content with other instructors (if desired). We also share information on Open Educational Resources (OER) and cover the benefits of selecting OER for both you and your students.

Designing for Low-Stakes Assessment

Guided by your course learning objectives, using shorter, more regular assessments may provide students a better foundation of knowledge and practice with the material—especially in a time when high-stakes exams are less optimal. In this workshop, we discuss the value in low-stakes assessments, and how to create them in eClass.

Aligning Assessments with the Gradebook

The workshop demonstrates the relationship between eClass (Moodle) assessments (assignments and quizzes) and the gradebook. We go beyond the the basics of creating an “assignment” submission dropbox, to explore the nuts and bolts of assessment creation and management by reviewing best practices and helpful hints that can contribute toward a better, more efficient experience for both you and your students.
