EMOL is an online training course that aims to guide online lesson design. Specifically targeted to address the design needs of Math Lectures at Singapore Polytechnic, EMOL presents the design process as an iterative, inquiry-based three stage cycle - Stage 1: Understanding and Planning; Stage 2: Visualization and Prediction; Stage 3: Evaluation and Refinement. At the heart of the design cycle are example effective math online lessons that were developed by the design team that includes a group of math lecturers from Singapore Polytechnic. Using a participatory design process, the learning interactions between team members are captured and reflected in the overall design of EMOL. Guided by these examples lessons, lecturers will attend EMOL with a teaching partner to create a first iteration for their own online lesson. The training activities are linked strategically to the participants' project and allow the learners to participate in a community of practice.
