Designing courses for e-learning
ByRHONA SHARPE, MARTIN OLIVER
Pages 11

In the previous chapter, the design of learning activities was located within the wider context of the learning organization and curriculum. This chapter picks up where that chapter left off, at the level of the course and curriculum design. Starting with the generic teaching and learning literature, the authors outline established approaches to course design and go on to discuss the evidence for how these approaches work within e-learning contexts. The chapter emphasizes the power of the transformative course design and presents a series of examples of courses designed for learning, and a set of tools to support practitioners in this task.
