What all goes into online course construction? How much work is it and what skills do you need? What are the best tools for the job? And what makes for effective online learning? The following video segments take a stab at answering these questions.
My colleague Natasha Collette and I decided to video record a conversation between us about the making of the online course Making Science and Engineering Pictures (MITx 0.111x). The two of us worked together, with our friend and colleague, Felice Frankel (the course’s instructor), in 2015. I’ve blogged about the course earlier – documenting the tools we used, the student voices, and the live event we staged, but these recorded conversations between us will provide behind-the-scenes insight into the course’s construction.
