6 Objectives Reasons for implementation of online workshop Process used for design & development Feedback from faculty Demonstration of Blackboard course Demonstration of tools used Future goals

7 Reasons for Implementation 2004 spring semester statistics showed that out of 684 faculty using Blackboard only 324 attended Blackboard orientation workshop. 72% of our faculty are part-time faculty. Most part-time faculty do not have time to attend workshops during regular office hours. Learning how to use Blackboard is time consuming and some faculty find it very difficult to use. Reduce the number of s and phone calls.

8 Reasons for Implementation We needed an alternative to classroom- led workshops Part-time faculty need access to information when it is more convenient to them. E-learning can be used to promote collaboration and create a community Content is consistent with information provided in face-to-face workshops

9 Process Used for Design & Development Project plan using Instructional System Design (ISD) process Initial needs assessment survey –Only 47% of the faculty received training –Most faculty tried to learn how to use Blackboard on their own Task analysis and course outline –Course Information –Policies and guidelines –Using Blackboard –Preparing a Blackboard course Web site

10 Process Used for Design & Development Flowchart for content organization Define objectives and expectations Create online activities using communication tools – –Discussion Board –Virtual Classroom

11 Process Used for Design & Development Write storyboards and create content –HTML –PDF –Movies –Simulations Field testing/small group tryout

12 Feedback from Faculty Faculty like the ability to access content at anytime and anywhere Access and ease of use was not a problem Duration of workshop was too long Use of collaboration tools should not be required

13 Drawbacks of e-Learning Blackboard system was upgraded after online workshop was implemented Multimedia files needed to be updated Faculty need to have the motivation and self-discipline Faculty with disabilities may need special support
