WSU Works to Get Online Content Right
Walter Sisulu University – Course Development Toolkit
Walter Sisulu prides itself on being an institution that promotes and improves access to higher education. WSU’s focus is on providing quality education, and technological and career-orientated programmes. These bring forth necessary skills for development in rural and urban areas, with a special emphasis on entrepreneurship.
In order to create and deliver effective online learning materials, it is important to carefully balance fundamental concepts with engaging learning activities and a carefully thought-out progression that inspires learners to stay engaged and work together. It is necessary for instructional designers and developers to produce context-rich, well-communicated, and consistent learning experiences while developing such online courses.
An on-site, two-day program has been developed to assist WSU in creating a set of technical online learning standards for their virtual learning environment (VLE) that will serve as guidelines for online course designers, lecturers, and new faculty on issues like the use of color, fonts, naming conventions, course links, and modules.
The end result was a partner-specific manual that all of their VLE course developers, but especially new faculty, can refer to when creating their own online programs and courses (available three weeks after onsite delivery). This Course Development Toolkit compiles a number of significant designs and quality standards into a handy compilation.
