ELO offers three types of funding to develop and support online and/or blended courses. These include:
Develop new online courses. A course is considered new if:
- The course has never been offered online, or more than 50% of the course content needs to be designed, or redesigned when converting an existing online or face-to-face course.
- Typical tasks to create a new online course include:
- Aligning learning objectives, outcomes, activities, and assessments.
- Producing videos (recording and post-production)
- Converting old videos to new format (e.g., Adobe Presenter videos to mp4)
- Creating or reformatting course pages (e.g., converting web pages to pages in Canvas)
- Moving existing course material to a new LMS (Moodle to Canvas or vice versa)
- Creating new assessments, such as quizzes and assignments
- Setting up course design evaluations
Develop new blended courses (for LAS only). A course is considered blended if:
- At least 50% of the course content is delivered online.
- In addition to tasks undertaken for new online courses, tasks for blended courses include:
- Designing in-class and online activities to complement each other.
- Designing in-class time to be used creatively
- Designing assessments that align with the blended approach.
Improve existing online/blended courses. A course is considered to be in need of improvement if:
- Less than 50% of the recorded lectures and/or content needs to be re-recorded or changed.
- Assessments need to be updated (e.g., updating quizzes and assignments).
- Graphics need to be updated
