Online/Hybrid Course Approval Process

DLIT instructional design services include:

  • Guidance and resources for faculty to use in online, hybrid, web-enhanced, and face-to-face courses
  • Any variation of the 5 phases in ADDIE in online, hybrid, web-enhanced, and face-to-face courses
  • Online and Hybrid Course Approval
  • Project planning, project management, and/or student input

There are a variety of ways to approach instructional or course design.  DLIT adapts the approach defined by the foundational instructional design framework, ADDIE (i.e. Analysis, Design, Development, Implement, and Evaluation).  ADDIE is an iterative approach divided in to 5 phases. Each phase has a specific purpose:

Graph
  • Analysis – clarify instructional goals, define the learning environment, and characterize the learners existing knowledge and skills
  • Design –systematically develop the plan for instruction based on the analysis
  • Development – create and assemble the course in the learning management system
  • Implementation – create training for adjuncts and/or learners, insure needed technology is available and working in classrooms and labs
  • Evaluation – provide assistance and feedback according to best practices and research-based standards in distance learning
