Curious if you have anything determined yet for the course: course objectives or desired results, assessment possibilities, instructional delivery-public or private, credit and non-credit seeking learners, respective major, LMS/CMS, etc...
Any information you can provide will help give context to those making contributions to your cause.
Yes we do,
- The course will be offered as an open online course with C-MOOC like features with interactions distributed accross the web. "Instructional" delivery will definitely be public enabling anyone to participate without password access.
- The open version will be published using the OERu web-publishing model (see for example DS4OER - there will be options for any institution to integrate the core course materials within the local LMS - but the OERu version will always be open.
- Learners may study for self-interest (i.e not interested in formal credit) in parallel with OERu learners seeking formal credit.
- Otago Polytechnic will be providing assessment services leading to transcript credit for this 1st-year level course. Other partners may also decide to accredit or recognise credit transfer.
- We are currently exploring the remix / incorporation of existing courses, see for example:
- The TESU curriculum outline and the programme specification for a similar USQ course - but we are not necessarily wedded to these learning outcomes, hence the crowdsourcing approach.
- The LiDA course will be offered as part of the OERu 1st year of study with strong encouragement for learners pursuing academic credit for a 1st year exit credential at the OERu to consider taking this course first to acquire the digital and learning skills needed for successful university study.
Hope this helps.
