Module Online Education

Would you like to understand and apply basic principles of online course design and assessment?

Topics that will be covered are the basics of different types of teaching and learning strategies and assessment methods in your online course design. Topics that will be covered are different types of education, how to provide structure in your course, collaborate group work strategies, and assessment for learning and assessment of learning methods.
