Every year, NCSU awards IDEA Grants to faculty for online course development projects. The instructional design team wanted to create a resource that would pull together best practices in course development and also allow IDEA grant recipients to connect with one another.
I led efforts to create an IDEA Grants Resource site in Moodle that:
- provides an overview of the IDEA Grant process and lays out roles and responsibilities.
- allows IDEA grant recipients to connect with each other and the instructional design staff via chat, discussion forums, and polls.
- contains information and resources related to various stages of the course development process. Resources are structured around a series of commonly asked questions and include helpful links, tips, examples, and documents.
