Converting to An Online Course: What Do I Need to Know?

Are you new to teaching online? This can seem like a daunting task, even if you already use some online software.

What are some key things to think about? There are many helpful resources already available.

Let's explore some key considerations.

Some things to keep in mind:
  1. Designing a course with accessibility and universal design in mind
  2. Communicating with Students
  3. Designing online assignments
  4. Exploring learner support options
  5. Locating competencies/Learning objectives
  6. Working with assessment tools
  7. Finding other resources such as recorded webinars for more information
Accessibility and Universal Design

Can students find and access the materials they need? It is clear how they will turn in work? Are they able to navigate course materials? Are all readings, videos, problems, assessments, etc. accessible as well as syllabi and other course materials?

Think about things like the use of screen readers and magnification tools, captioned media, and more.

Communication with students

Communication with students is the key!

  • email
  • use of LMS tools such as Blackboard Collaborate
  • product-specific tools such as the ability to search student performance by criteria
  • use of video meeting tools like Zoom or Google Hangouts
  • use of engagement tools such as Learning Catalytics
Tips for Online Assignments
  • Are you new to using these? Perhaps there is an existing course to copy. You can also adopt and edit sample assignments.
  • Consider the mindset/cognitive load for students.
  • Use a pacing doc or provide some sort of course schedule/calendar. Learning Management Systems have these tools as well.
  • Use student performance metrics to create reasonable length assignments.
  • Embed some student success tools, study tips for working online, etc.
  • Make sure deadlines are clearly posted.
Learner Support Options
  • Explore resources such as tutorial exercises as media.
  • Check to see if online tools have interactive figures and videos.
  • Review types of available feedback options. Consider making 'canned' responses of video feedback. Again, your LMS may have tools to make this easier as well as the content product.
  • If students read and analyze text or solve problems for example in class, you may want to create discussion posts to replicate this online. Allow peer feedback as well as providing instructor feedback.
  • Use tools like Learning Catalytics to engage your students and give your feedback about their performance.
  • Add Smarthinking to your course to provide additional support.
Assessment tools
  • Consider the use of low stakes assessment with remediation and personalization tools (specific to the product).
  • Think about how will you give feedback on student progress. Consider how students will be able to practice the key skills and objectives you want them to get out of the course - things they would normally do in class. How will you give the opportunities for practice and feedback, for both small-stakes and high-stakes assignments?
  • Be sure that it's very clear how students can access those opportunities.
Do you need proctoring online?
  • Consider the use of tools that allow you to restrict IP addresses or lock browsers.
  • For high-stakes assessments, you may want to consider proctored exams. However, researching options here can take time to choose the right product, typically involve fees, and require approval and implementation.
  • Are there an alternative means to large assessments? A project?
Competencies/Learning objectives

Explore your product to learn where to find/how to run item analysis reports. Many products have a variety of options for tracking student performance.

Be sure competencies or learning objectives are clearly posted for students as well. If you are using an LMS, you may want to have weekly folders.

Posta a pacing guide to help students know what is due when. Make sure the calendar is up to date with due dates as well.

Communicate, communicate, communicate!

Educators that have taught online will quickly tell you how critical is to respond quickly to student questions. Often we find that while students may easily navigate social media or a video game, working in an online course is a completely different experience.

The students may need additional support with study skills and use of tools like discussion boards and collaborative projects. Use video meetings and recordings to share key information and let your students know you are there to help them.

You can use tools like Remind101, email by criteria, video calls, etc. to communicate. Be sure students know how to get in touch with you.
