Abstract

Proposing cumulative and integrative processes for an online course development, this paper addresses six core considerations when shifting from a face-to-face to a blended to a online class in three academic semesters. Considerations address real-time face-to-face interaction, lecture structure, instructor presence, learning objectives, course assessment, and transforming the Learning Management System into a teaching tool. The paper concludes with a discussion of lessons learned which include managing unrealistic expectations, remembering that students are technologically diverse, consulting with instructional designers and other online faculty, and planning forward for a three semester process for the design and development of a online course.
