Designing Curriculum for a 12 week - Intro to Elearning and Instructional Design
I am in the process of designing the curriculum for a 12 week course aimed at professional writers. The course is ambitious and hopes to leave the learners with a "taste" for designing and developing elearning courses. There will be some hands on ( hoping the college will provide students with Articulate Storyline as an authoring tool).
The course will run for 3 hours a week and is part of a larger "Professional Writing" certificate program for university graduates. The intention is not that the students will be elearning design and development experts but will be exposed to the basics, current trends, futures, etc for elearning and development.
Some of the content will be covered in a boot-camp that all students will take at the beginning of the program ( I am recommending that we include a how-to session on Storyboarding in the bootcamp).
If you were designing this, what topics would you include? Understanding that time is short.
ps: I do have an outline developed but I am hoping to get some ideas/suggestions from my peers. Anything you can provide would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
