Successful Online Course DesignsNeed: What problem or need existed that gave rise to your innovation? The need to use Electronic Technology in Course Designs

Successful Online Course Designs : 

Successful Online Course Designs Research: What research organization or people developed a solution to this problem or need? What were their findings? Who were the “lead thinkers” for this innovation, and how did they convince a manufacturer to produce it? -Successful course design in the online environment should not be limited to technology types, but to their application. The solution is not in one technology, but in incorporating all available technological tools into the online learning environment. -Lead Thinkers; Arthur Chickering & Zelda Gamson (1987) contributed important approaches to online educational course design.

Successful Online Course Designs : 

Successful Online Course Designs Development: What problems did your innovation encounter in the development process? Who was the intended audience for your innovation? Development Problems; -Learning Outcomes -Feedback Mechanisms -Selection of available Technology -Delivery Mechanism -People Barriers The intended audience; -Educational Institutions -Corporations

Successful Online Course Designs : 

Successful Online Course Designs Commercialization: Describe the production, manufacturing, packaging, marketing, and distribution of your innovation. Designing an online course incorporates many available technological innovations. -Wikis -Blogs -Presentation Hardware and Software (person becomes aware of an innovation and has some idea of how it functions) Design Courses for Students to take Online

Successful Online Course Design : 

Successful Online Course Design Persuasion – person forms a favorable or unfavorable attitude toward the innovation Expanding courses to online format increases class enrollment Today’s learners want to learn with technology, online, on their own time, at their own place, and with interaction with others

Who would you expect to be (or who are) the innovators and early adopters in your field of work for the innovation you are exploring? What strategies are the most persuasive in convincing them to adopt the innovation? : 

Who would you expect to be (or who are) the innovators and early adopters in your field of work for the innovation you are exploring? What strategies are the most persuasive in convincing them to adopt the innovation? The strategies that would be the most persuasive in convincing people to accept an innovation in online course design would be trialability. The reason is because of how technology that is used in an online course design is constantly changing and evolving. With this known fact, people are very skeptical about using new technology because of a fear factor of the unknown or unfamiliarity with new technical innovations such as Wikis, and Blogs. The early adopters back in the late 1980’s and early 1990 have had an even tougher time because they didn’t have the benefit of prior experience. They had to rely on trialability even more than today. Successful Online Course Design

Who do you think would be (or who are) the laggards in terms of rejecting the innovation? What strategies would be best to help move them toward adoption? : 

Who do you think would be (or who are) the laggards in terms of rejecting the innovation? What strategies would be best to help move them toward adoption? People barriers are the main obstacles when it comes to implementing a successful online course design. The technology is new, so there is a reluctance to embark on something that has been tested on a small scale. I believe trialability would be the strategy that would work best because it allows for gradual change. It builds confidence in people that the potential outcome will be successful and beneficial for all involved parties. Successful Online Course Design

Slide 12: 

Do you believe a centralized or decentralized approach would work best for the adoption of the innovation you are proposing to the Board of Directors? Decentralized Approach to designing a successful course that will incorporate a variety of technologies and allow more control of technology development. Change Agents; Teachers, Consultants-Facilitate innovation flow from change agency to audience. Successful Online Course Design
