1 Collaborative development of DL courses Stephen Swithenby Abuja May 2010

2 A student centred view A curriculum that is well structured and of interest Learning resources that are interactive and work like a tutor Information, advice and guidance that is personal and available when needed. A sense of belonging to the university and pride in being a student of that university. Assessment that helps learning – good feedback Administrative efficiency A degree that has a high reputation Reasonable cost.

3 Learning resources Interactive text – ebook version Interactive multimedia (OERs, Flash) Audio and audio-visual materials (TV, radio, CDs, USB) Set books Bridging, self help and diagnostic materials Home kits Ancillary resources, e.g. maps, photographs Study guide, commentary and timetable Continuous assessment - marking guides - tutor materials Summative assessment – marking guide

4 Learning resources Quality takes time (appropriate coverage, engaging, academically accurate, linked well to assessment, attractively designed, good use of language, free of typos.) Use of standard templates speeds up development (Word to XML to print or Web) Quality resources are expensive but resource development is a very small part of costs of a fully supported DL system. QA process is time consuming ( 6 to 30 months development)
