The Intelligent Professor’s Guide to Intelligent Agents in D2L
 

One of the most important types of engagement for learners is that between instructors and learners. Adding automation through Intelligent Agents (IAs) in D2L is one way to boost individual interaction with your learners without requiring a lot of extra effort on your part. Intelligent agents are customizable messages automatically emailed to individual learners when the student fulfills (or does not fulfill) a particular task. For example, an instructor may choose to set an intelligent agent to let a student know when he or she has missed a deadline on an assignment or acknowledge a student who achieved an exceptional score on a quiz. Intelligent agents require initial set up (which can take less than 5 minutes.) Then, the intelligent agent works on its own in the background of a course. In this webinar, Intelligent Agents in D2L will be demonstrated. Templates will be provided for recommended settings for common Intelligent Agents including sample messages.

FORMAT

WEBINAR: The webinar will be live and online at the time listed using the Collaborate Ultra web conferencing software.

NOTE: A web address for joining the session will be sent to registrants in the confirmation and reminder emails for the webinar. Chrome and Firefox are the recommended browsers.

Rethinking Modules to Organize Your Teaching Materials in D2L
 

Modular course design affords many advantages. It can save time in the development and updating of course content, the modular components are easily repurposed across courses, and dividing learning content into small digestible chunks can improve student learning. In this webinar, we will discuss some varieties of modular design, and how those design can be created in D2L Brightspace.

Online Course Development Institute (OCDi)
 

The Online Course Development Institute was established to provide faculty at Eastern Illinois University a professional development opportunity to experience best practices in online teaching and guidance in quality online course development. The OCDi is for EIU faculty developing or redesigning an online course and teaching online for the first time at EIU.



GOAL


The goal of the OCDi is to provide faculty with suggested guidelines and training necessary to develop a quality online course which will enhance the online teaching and learning experiences of both faculty and students and encourage effective engagement and collaboration in the online environment.



EIU ONLINE COURSE POLICY


“All instructors of online courses must submit proof of having completed the
Online Course Development Institute (OCDI), Illinois Online Network’s “Master
Online Teacher" certificate or another documented and equivalent training
activity before teaching the courses/sections for the first time.” The EIU Online Course Policy can be found at https://www.eiu.edu/eiucaa/OnlineCoursePolicy.pdf.



OBJECTIVES


  1. The participant will be able to develop a course for online delivery using standards presented for effective online course design.

  2. The participant will be able incorporate strategies for effective online teaching and learning.

  3. The participant will be able to integrate technologies that will engage students in the online environment and align with the course objectives.

  4. The participant will be able to meet the university requirement for teaching an online course.



TOPICS


The course contains eight content modules. The topics of each module are listed below.


  1. Overview, Introduction, and Learner Support

  2. Learning Objectives and Instructional Design

  3. Accessibility and Usability

  4. Instructional Materials

  5. Course Activities and Learner Interaction

  6. Assessment and Measurement

  7. Course Technology

  8. Online Teaching Strategies



FORMAT


The OCDi Training Course is an online, self-directed course. Participants work through the content modules at their own pace. However, the facilitator is always available to answer questions, provide consultation, review assignments, and post grades and feedback. The course includes online activities, online resources, technology tutorials, and an online synchronous discussion scheduled at the participant’s convenience.



TIME REQUIREMENT


I am often asked the time requirement necessary to complete the OCDi training which is a difficult question to answer. The training originated as an 8-week face-to-face course followed by the completion of the online course development. The same course components remain but the course has been developed into a self-directed, online course. Because the course is self-paced, completion time often depends on many factors including the motivation, technology skills, experience, and time demands of the person completing the training.
