Current Project of E-LC Distance Education Project - IU/AzRENA (AZ01) is the USA Education Partnership Program between Indiana University & AzRENA has been founded in 2003. [Grant No.S-ECAAS-03-GR-219 (CS)]. AzRENA is to be considered as the base Center of E-LC on the regional level.
Educational Partnerships Program IU/AzRENA IU/AzRENA partnership has 4 major goals: Develop Azerbaijan faculty instructional design and IU global E-learning expertise; Develop Web-based courses to support Azerbaijan faculty professional development program focused on DE design and implementation; Develop and deliver a Pilot online course demonstrating DE application in the local educational context; IU will send 4-5 faculty for a total of 3 months to the AzRENA and will bring 5 faculty for a total of 4.5 months to IU for intensive training in DE course development and instruction.
Project Impact IU/AzRENA partnership will provide the foundation for a significant DE effort within Azerbaijan, making education opportunities more widely available to Azerbaijan citizens. The IU/ AzRENA partnership in designing DE strategies has a significant potential for other Azerbaijan universities and other countries of the Caspian Sea region. This linkage is also laying the foundation for further long-term collaboration between IU and Azerbaijan Universities in building instructional technology programs in Azerbaijan and enhancing the education component of the IU curriculum.
Aspects of distance education. How to develop instructional design for an online course? What are the main steps of the course adaptation process from traditional to online format?
