Abstract

This paper describes the evaluation cycle for online courses that are intended to achieve sustainable improvement. Aoyama Gakuin University has established an online course program and a course evaluation cycle to improve the courses. The initial evaluation cycle that focused on independent course evaluation was performed as part of the online program for two semesters. The examination of the improvement between the semesters revealed that the reflection of the instruction team as practitioners influenced actual improvements in the course. Finally, the paper describes the revised course evaluation cycle in order to reflect the practitioners' visions.
