Create Your Own Online Course Fall Workshop

Sep 24, 2018, 12:35 PM

Interested in offering an online course but not sure where to start? Want to learn how to build lecture videos or how to assess your online students? Need some help with the basic tools of Moodle or Compass?

CITL’s Create Your Own Online Course Workshop is designed to help you identify what is involved in creating an online course, help you get started, and provide resources for getting additional help.

The format of this workshop is flexible to your needs and availability. The entire workshop runs Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, October 29, 30, and November 1, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM each day. The workshop will be held in 428 Armory.

The workshop is comprised of 15 sessions, most of which are 30 minutes long. You are welcome to come to as many or as few as you would like. Sign-up for all three mornings of the workshop (9 hours in total) in order to have an intensive experience, covering all of the bases. Alternatively, you can also pick and choose which topics are of interest to you and attend just for those sessions.

The workshop is open to all Illinois faculty, staff, and TAs. The workshop is free of charge, but we do ask you to indicate via the RSVP form which days you will attend (even if you plan to only stay for 30 minutes, so we can have enough coffee on hand!). Participation in these sessions counts for CITL certificate credit. Please RSVP by Thursday, October 25. If you have any questions, please contact Katie Glaze.
