What do you do first?

You may be thinking “that’s great, but what do I actually do?”

Now that you have thought about what you have—maybe there is content from the classroom version of the course you are transitioning, or maybe it’s a new course, and you are designing it based on the curriculum standard—your first step is to gather up your resources.

Locate and organize all the current content, including any videos, PDFs, help files, blog posts, instructions, accreditation standards, and any other official documents associated with the course you will are designing.

Update the content, make sure that all your links, references, and content are current. This is a great opportunity to review what you have and source new content, and content ideas. 

Tips for organizing: you are going to be updating every file, so having a location to store current materials, and a location to store edited materials is paramount to version control.

Using a file naming convention is also incredibly time-saving for you, and for others who will be helping with or facilitating the course.

One way to ensure you have the most recent file is to add (current year) at the end of each file that you have edited.

Take a look at the resources section for File Naming Convention Standards. Be consistent with how you name your files. For example, this file is called “what do you do first.html,” and it is stored in the “01 Designing for Online Learning” folder.

 

Think about creating an online experience. Use bloom’s taxonomy to help you consider your options. Write these ideas down in one document.

Consider storytelling, branching scenarios, reflective learning (allowing their own conclusions), question pools, contests, video drama, or make the learner the facilitator for a chosen project.
