EIFFEL CORP CASE STUDIE
UJ INTRODUCES A FULLY ONLINE DEGREE IN INTL. ACCOUNTING
The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is a diverse and dynamic institution that aims to contribute to the development of Africa through higher education. One of the major challenges faced by UJ was adapting traditional courses to an online format and ensuring authentic assessments. Additionally, recruiting enough students for online courses was crucial for establishing credibility. To address these challenges, UJ sought the expertise of Eiffel Corp, a company with experience in digital teaching and learning management systems. As a result of the collaboration, students appreciated the well-thought-out instructional design, finding it helpful in navigating the course. The courses have been kept up to date, thanks to careful instructional design and content development.
The course had to go through a well-thought-out process and proper design for the course to make sense to students. As with all courses, we also face the challenge of recruiting students. We need enough students to complete the course in order to establish a credible reputation for this online course.
Eiffel Corp assisted with training lecturers at the University of Johannesburg in Digital Teaching, specifically focusing on the tools that a Learning Management System has to offer. Having the support in project management provided us significant assistance to
ensure the project roll out, ran smoothly.
Feedback from our students confirmed that the well thought out instructional design certainly helped them to navigate their way through the course more easily. The course is now being kept up to date, all thanks to the well thought through Instructional Design and Content Development.
