Discussion Questions #4: Content can take many forms. If you were encouraging a faculty member to become involved in the creation of his or her own content, how would you suggest they start, and how would you see them progressing?

I would picture myself working with the faculty member as a team in the beginning.  After we have produced a product, documenting the steps, I would anticipate the faculty member taking over production in the future, if possible.

Creating Course Content:

  1. I would ask the faculty member these questions first:
    1. What is the purpose of the exercise?
    2. Does this exercise help the students obtain the goals of the course?
    3. What do you want to do? Audio? Video? Audio/Video? Web activity?
    4. If you answer yes to any options in c., do you plan to provide other versions for ADA compliance?
    5. Can you think of any further issues for this phase of the planning?
  2. Next, I would work with the faculty member to storyboard or create a rough draft of what they envision.
  3. Now is time to decide on the appearance of the item and possible navigation.
  4. We would explore good and bad design issues, maybe look at resources, such as: http://www.ratz.com/features.html
  5. We would need to gather the necessary assets, such as images, text, video, links, etc.
  6. We would need to discover what software is available and what training will be required to accomplish the goal.
  7. Now, working as a team, the first time, we would produce the product.
  8. No, it’s not ready yet. Now, we would need to test the product with volunteer students.
  9. The content would have to be modified according to the testers’ suggestions.
  10. Next, the content needs to be published for class use.
  11. Counsel the faculty member and advise them to continue to monitor the usage of the content.
  12. The instructor/content creator will have to update and modify content as needed.

What did I forget?
