Red Deer College strives to create a high-quality online learning environment guided by an evidence-based quality framework. Our approach involves pairing faculty with a team of learning designers, educational multimedia specialists, and librarians to maximize expertise in the creation of quality online courses.
The following graphic illustrates this approach:
Our Framework for Quality Online Courses guides faculty through the development, delivery, and renewal of quality online courses at RDC.
It consists of three phases:
Each phase contains a process that illustrates the associated tasks, action items, resources, and team members.
When moving through the framework, we introduce faculty to a team that is available to support them through the phases. This team includes a:
- Learning Designer
- Educational Multimedia Specialist
- School Librarian
- Flexible Learning Support Specialist
