7 Steps to Building a Great Online Course (

Created by: Delivered by:

This course is designed to show a seven-step process to design an online course using iNacol's quality online course standards.

In this course we will cover:

Step 1: Curriculum planning for online courses

Step 2: Building structure in online courses

Step 3: Building online assessments

Step 4: Building online projects

Step 5: Adding external content to online lessons

Step 6: Adding direct instruction to online lessons

Step 7: Creating online collaboration activities

This course will cover the strategies involved with backwards design of online courses. In a backwards design model the course builder starts by identifying key items that learners must understand by the end of a unit of instruction, assessments are then built to assess that understand and then finally the instruction itself is built.
