ODL 300: Course Design Practicum

Delivery: Facilitated; asynchronous/synchronous blend 

Time requirements: 3-4 hours per week

Duration: 8 weeks

Participants should expect to spend additional time designing and building Moodle courses.  To receive the ULearn Course Designer certification, participants must complete all course content, meeting Quality Matters standards on all activities and assignments by set due dates.

  • Modules 1, 2, and 3 must be completed by 11:59 PM on the last day of Module 3. 
  • Modules 4, 5, and 6 must be completed by 11:59 PM on the last day of Module 6. 

Additionally, participants must complete a Peer Review Workshop by 11:55 p.m. on the last day of Module 8. 

Participants unable to complete these assignments can re-enroll in a future section.

During CDP, each participant designs or enhances an online or hybrid course based on the Quality Matters standards. When placed in the role of an online student, a faculty member gathers valuable experience about the online environment. As a result, each faculty member can better determine the tools and pedagogy that will best enable their students’ success.

At the end of CDP, faculty participate in a peer-review of their course designs and a “sandbox showcase” event.
