Description:This online training workshop moves beyond the technical how-to of a LMS to focus on the unique challenges faced by online educators and their students. This workshop is designed to take you through the development of the online course from the beginning to end with both theoretical guidance and practical tips and tools.

Effective online courses require a lot more than just understanding how the supporting technology works; facilitators need to understand the nuances of online learning and how to engage students and reach learning goals in a virtual environment. We will cover the steps instructors need to take before the course begins, how to build content, how to encourage collaboration, what assessment tools are appropriate, and how to determine success with various evaluation techniques, all while exploring how your institutions LMS can help you along the way.
