Abstract

This paper explores the development of an online element for a Clinical Tropical Medicine Course, and tips instructional designers can consider when converting courses from a traditional setting to a blended learning environment. Advances in technology have allowed learning environments to expand into virtual settings. This has created more demands on faculty to develop and use new technology in their classes. The conversion of a course, from successful traditional classroom environment to a blended learning environment, presents many challenges. In this case successful interaction between the instructional developer and other constituents has given insight into the several factors that are proving useful in the development process. This presentation explores the development of an online element for a Clinical Tropical Medicine Course and tips instructional designers can consider when converting courses.
