Developing a Recommended Course Design Process for Faculty Teaching MOOCs
Seth Anderson, Academic Technology Consultant, Duke University
Haiyan Zhou, Academic Technology Consultant, Duke University
During the summer of 2012, Duke University joined the growing number of institutions providing instruction through MOOCs. Duke's Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) worked with other units on campus to create a recommended design and development pathway for faculty teaching MOOCs, the development of which focused on modifying existing online course design principles to meet the needs of an almost exponentially larger arena. This session will offer participants an opportunity to learn about the evolution of this recommended course design process and to examine ways in which it changed as faculty members developed and implemented their MOOC courses.

This session will look at DELTA's redesign program, with a focus on the analysis of student learning outcomes, who benefits the most from redesign, and who is successfully transitioning to more advanced study.
