Online Course Development Process

The online course development process offers a unique set of opportunities and challenges. Many factors are at play in successfully building your online course. For the development of a quality course, it is necessary to define your teaching and learning philosophy. It is good to know the level of teaching and learning where you stand, and that level will help you in the reinforcement of the protocols and strategies throughout the span of a course from its making to its delivery.

Many things that can be done spontaneously, face to face must be planned and organized ahead of time, online. Three to five hours per week throughout this process are necessary to set aside. We have developed a systematic and methodical approach for your course development over a span of 101 days.
