Hybrid Course Design Process (P3D)

The hybrid course design process has four phases, referred to as P3D.

1

Planning:

  • Get Approval from your Associate Dean
  • Create a Project Plan with the Manager of Multimedia Design
2

Design:

  • Create/Revise your Learning Plan (Sample Learning Plans)
  • Design the Content, Learning Activities and Assessment Plan (Download Templates)
3

Develop:

Develop the digital content, learning activities and assessments using the skill of the Multimedia and eLearning team.

  • Sample of Digital Content
  • Sample of Learning Activities
  • Sample of Assessments
4

Deploy:

  • Review the finished course in Blackboard
  • Deploy the course to your live course shell
  • Complete the self-reflection feedback form
  • Collect feedback from your students on the course design.

How to get started?

You can start by brain storming your ideas with:

  • The Manager of Multimedia Design
  • Your Associate Deans
  • Your program team

Online Learning @ SLC

Benefits and Outcome

Student can learn at their own time and location. Prepare students to be continuous learners

Online Course Design Process (P3D)

Our course design process for online courses adopt an agile approach as there are many variables that influence the process here at SLC. You can start at any point in the P3D process. For example if you are tasked with creating a new course that has never been taught at SLC, then the effort will be a bit more extensive, you will begin at the planning phase and walk through each of the phases in the P3D process. If however you have been tasked with delivering an existing course then you may only need specific elements of the development phase.

To determine where to begin, you can consult with the Manager of Multimedia Design (Ext 1448).

    Guidelines for Designing an Online Course

    Before attempting to design an online course it is essential that you understand some key elements. Firstly, a face to face course differs from an online course, while some objects can be reused and polished, it isn’t a 1:1 translation. An online course isn’t the digitalization of presentation material within an LMS. There are more extensive consideration that are specific to the online modality.

    Here is a good starting point to get you going:

    Guidelines for Designing an Online Course

    Preparing my live course shell:

    • Do a final review of all links, ensure there are no dead or inaccessible links.
    • Ensure all due dates are updated
    • Ensure all contact details are updated.
    • Ensure you have uploaded the signed updated version of your LP and CO in the course information area.

    Launch Checklist

    Before you make your course available to students. Ensure you review the checklist.

    • Are your students prepared for online learning? (Student Online Portal).
    • Is it clear where students should start and where they can find the course components?
    • Are the staff contact details included and easy to find?
    • Will students know what to expect from you online (e.g. how regularly you will be online in the course, the turnaround time for answers to questions)?
    FAQ's

    Most course give instructors the flexibility to make changes their course including the assessment in the learning plan. If however you require a complete revamp of content, learning activities and assessment for a course then you may want to consider engaging in a the Course Design Process.

    All online course at SLC, should comply with our BB standard, especially so the menu and grade center usage. We encourage faculty to adopt a Module Based approach as it is more flexible. We also encourage faculty to be consistent with the introduction of new topic/modules (See Template)
